    Turner: Antonio Gates is healthy again

    Before getting hurt last year, Chargers tight end Antonio Gates was having a historic season for a tight end.

    Gates limped to the finish line, but the Chargers offense did pretty well without him. (Which says a lot about Philip Rivers.) Chargers coach Norv Turner looks forward to having Gates back healthy in 2011.

    “He’s going to be our lead guy,” Turner told the team’s website. “It’s a shame he got hurt a year ago because he was not only going to have his career-best year but maybe the best year ever by a tight end.”

    Turner got to see Gates during the brief lifting of the lockout. He reports that Gates’ rehab has gone well and the tight end is healthy again after struggling with a foot injury last year.

    With Vincent Jackson year-to-year and Gates still in his prime, this could be the last best chance for this current group of Chargers stars to reach a Super Bowl together.
