Chargers M*A*S*H Report

By Ernie Padaon

Good news on Antonio Gates: He is out and practicing today. Not so good news for some other players though. Mike Tolbert, Malcom Floyd, Shaun Phillips and Kris Dielman all missed practice today.

Shaun Phillips is currently in a walking boot. Could you imagine the defense without Phillips rushing off of the edge? I guess it would be good news for Antwan Barnes, but we need to see Barnes and Phillips on the field at the same time. Marcus McNeill did not practice, but he was working out.

Vincent Jackson and Ryan Mathews are working also.

There always seems to be one receiver out on the Wednesday practice. This week is M80’s day to rest. And we wonder why Philip is a little off his targets.
