Antonio Gates did not practice again today. This makes it much more difficult to predict if he will be starting on Sunday. For anyone that has him on their fantasy squad, you better have that backup plan ready to go just in case.

There was good news for Vincent Jackson though. He was out at practice for the second consecutive day and he should be ready to go for Sunday.

Marcus Gilchrist missed his second consecutive practice and that can’t be good for his chances to be on the field on Sunday.

@mgehlkenMichael Gehlken Antonio Gates not practicing. Would’ve been consecutive days of work, so don’t panic yet. We’ll learn what rest means after practice.Oct 20 via Twitter for iPhoneFavoriteRetweetReply
