Chargers Injury Report: Gates Back At Practice; Mathews Still Practicing

Ryan Mathews was active in practice again today, suiting up for the second straight day. I am wondering how they will list him on the injury report. I would assume that they list him as Questionable for the game and then Norv will pull the old game time decision on them. Fantasy owners will love that and it will keep the Titans guessing.

Antonio Gates joined in on practice for the first time this week. His ribs were a little sore during the week and he took the last couple of days to rest them.

More updates should be rolling out soon. Jared Gaither might be seen twiddling his thumbs or something.

UPDATE (12:53 pm): Jammer is listed as probably with his broken hand. He was able to practice again today. Both Gates and Mathews are listed as questionable.

Jared Gaither and Shareece Wright are both listed as OUT for Sunday’s contest. Wonder what the Chargers will do with the corner situation. Greg Gaston is on the practice squad and could get the call, but the Chargers would have to make a roster move in order to bring him up. We will have to play that ‘wait and see’ game with that situation.

    might as well put gaither on IR. if the chargers did that would the new IR rule allow him to come back?

      it would allow him to come back… but it only allows one player to return. So later in the season, it might be between Gaither and Brown to return. if they did that

    They should put a stipulation in the contrat stating that if a player gets hurt outside a game they get a pay cut. Especially if its right after signing a big contract. It should also make the player pay fines if its proven they’re faking an injury.
