    SAN DIEGO (Aug. 22, 2005) -- Antonio Gates hadn't even stepped on the field and he already was running some zigzag routes.

    Besides contradicting his agent, the record-setting tight end said that travel problems kept him from reporting to training camp by Saturday afternoon, as mandated by the San Diego Chargers.

    Missing the deadline had serious consequences. The All-Pro was placed on the Roster Exempt List on Aug. 22, meaning he'll have to sit out the final two exhibition games and the season opener against Dallas on Sept. 11. He can be added to the activer roster on Sept. 12.</blockquote>
