Antonio Gates Doesn’t Sound Like a Guy who’s Playing Week 4

Antonio Gates Doesn’t Sound Like a Guy who’s Playing Week 4
Alex Dunlap, 


Chargers star TE Antonio Gates did not participate in practice Wednesday, and when asked by reporters of his chances of playing Sunday he said:

“It’d be difficult….. But who’s to say? In a span of two or three days, I’ve seen miracles happen with my body….I’m always in the game plan, always studying. Who knows? There’s a big difference between Wednesday and Sunday.”

For Antonio Gates fantasy football owners, get used to this at the very least. There will be a little bit of drama like this most weeks, it is the nature of the condition. Worst case for fantasy owners in the short-term is that Gates may decide to rest his ailing plantar fascia until he is back to his back to his old self, which he has not been all season when on the field. This is better for his long term viability as a fantasy commodity, but puts owners in a tough spot short-term. We do not suggest picking up Gates’ backup Randy McMichael as your TE if you are a Gates owner.
