In a blow for the Chargers offense, TE Antonio Gates – who’s been bothered by plantar fasciitis – is inactive for today’s game vs. the Chiefs.

After missing two straight weeks, Gates, still dealing with immense pain, managed to play the past two games, combining for 10 catches, 119 yards and a touchdown.

And though he seemed optimistic earlier in the week ("Something would have to be really, really hurting for me not to go,” he told reporters. “This is more of a dire need. Considering how important this game is and what this mean to our whole season I'd like to say that, speaking in the third person, Antonio Gates will play."), but as the week progressed and he kept missing practices, his chances of playing went way down.

Look for Randy McMichael to take his place.
