    Antonio Gates has an ankle injury

    Posted by Mike Florio on October 17, 2010 5:51 PM ET
    A bad day for the Chargers got worse on Sunday with the news that tight end Antonio Gates is wearing a protective boot.

    Per Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Gates has an ankle injury and it "doesn't look good."

    Acee says Gates had the ankle rolled twice. He had two catches for 12 yards in the 20-17 loss to the Rams, who have now matched their win total for 2009 and 2009 combined.

    I wish legs would have been healthy and ready to go, we might not have seen what went down. Tho damn 7 sacks goes all on the Oline....

    Being a charger fan right now, is deffinatly sickening.

    Well, they can't blame it on Big Mac not being there. I saw one play where Vasquez got owned and thrown out of the way before a sack. Of course, that was just one play of what was certain to be many.

    It would be a pretty lame excuse considering how well they played before the injuries.

    As far as Gates goin down, it was inevitable after play after play went his way in every game. Damn and he didnt break the TD streak by a TE of 9. ;/ Damn 10 TDs in 10 games in a row for a TE is pretty hard to get obviously.

    Gates was tied with Lance Alworth for consecutive games with a TD.

    That is some serious company.

    Like i was saying we probably wont see another TE do it. I realy wanted even jus for AG to exstend the all time record even if by only one more game. Owell maybe next year.
