Gates: “Lockout Has Kind of Been Helpful For Me”

By Ernie Padaon

Antonio Gates is getting much needed rest during this lockout to help recover from the foot and leg injuries that he had last season.

In an interview with Pro Football Weekly, Gates shared some of his thoughts from this lockout:

“The end of last season was tough, but this lockout has kind of been helpful for me, because it’s allowed me more time to rehab and get treatment,” Gates said. “So I’m feeling really good now.

Getting Gates back healthy will be HUGE for us this coming season. Everyone knows Gates’ value to this team so I won’t even waste your time telling you stuff you already know.

I will just post up this highlight video from TheMrBoltz of Gatesy tearing it up. Enjoy the video and let’s hope that this lockout ends soon so we can see Gates make more highlight reel plays.
