“It’s an injury,” Gaither said. “Those things happen. You can’t get yourself down. You have to continue to support the guys and work to get out there myself. Of course, it’s disappointing. Anytime you can’t do what you want to do, it’s disappointing. You’ve just got to keep working.”
Gaither is in his first year of his four-year contract extension that he signed back in March, so expect the Chargers to reevaluate Gaither’s contract, and decide if it’s worth keeping the often-injured tackle at a high cost. Rookie OT Mike Harris will likely replace Gaither at LT for the rest of the season.
