Antonio Gates: Could Play This Week

Posted on October 19, 2010 at 5:53 PM

NEWS UPDATE

There is optimism that Gates (toe) will play in Week 7 against the Patriots as tests revealed that he is not seriously injured, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

ROTOWIRE FANTASY ANALYSIS

The team has determined that the left toe injury that he suffered in Sunday’s 20-17 loss to the Rams is merely a sprain and is unrelated to his previous foot problems. This is very good news as he was seen wearing a protective boot when he left the stadium on Sunday. Originally, Gates talked about rolling his ankle in the game, but evidently the injury is actually to his big toe. Gates has been the leading receiver for San Diego all season long, so we will obviously watch his status closely this week.
