Chargers TE Antonio Gates seeking to scale back workload
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Old Man River, otherwise known as Antonio Gates, has barely missed a beat well beyond the years in which most players have settled into their retirements. But Gates, who will turn 36 in June, is finally looking to lessen his workload next season.

Gates played 787 snaps in 2014, which ranked 17th at his position and proved far more than many younger tight ends. He was also more productive than nearly all of them with 69 catches for 821 yards and 12 touchdowns, the second-highest total of his career. But while promoting a boxing match in Detroit, he told Monday Morning Quarterback that he would like to scale it back in 2015.

"With injuries and whatnot, I played a little bit more than they expected me to play last season," he said. "I was playing the whole game. How I feel next year, it depends on how much volume they have me doing. I'd like to come in on third-and-7s, red zones, those situations. That's what my contribution is at anyway."

His plan would give young, athletic Ladarius Green a chance to emerge as the primary tight end for the Chargers. Green took a step back last year with just 19 receptions for 226 yards and no scores after racking up 376 yards and three touchdowns in 2013.

Chargers to get TE Ladarius Green more involved
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Chargers head coach Mike McCoy plans on getting tight end Ladarius Green more involved in the offense, reports UT San Diego.

"There are things we can do more with him," McCoy said. "He worked extremely hard. I don't think it was anything he was physically doing out there. I think it was a matter of philosophically what we were doing with the players we had. We got into the 11 personnel game a lot, three receivers and a tight end. When you have the three receivers we had, and you've got (tight end) Antonio Gates, (you'd have to) take the back out of the game. We need to use him more."

Green was limited to only 19 receptions on 24 targets in 2014. Entering his fourth year in the league, the 24-year-old has totaled 40 receptions for 658 yards and three touchdowns.

General manager Tom Telesco echoed McCoy's sentiments about getting Green into the mix.

It's a good problem to have that we have enough guys," Telesco said. "Philip (Rivers) spreads the ball around. Basically, the open guy gets the ball; he doesn't force it to anybody. But Ladarius has a lot of talent. We'll get him in the mix. We will. He's too good not to."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers (chest, back) and tight end Ladarius Green (ankle, concussion) are active for Week 16's matchup with the 49ers.

Rivers missed practice Tuesday and Wednesday before having an "outstanding" day of practice Thursday and winding up listed as probable on the team's final injury report. Green was deemed questionable but will suit up, as will defensive tackle Corey Liuget (ankle), who also carried a questionable tag into Saturday's game.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Ladarius Green, who missed Week 15 with a concussion, practiced Tuesday ahead of Saturday's visit to San Francisco, reports ESPN.com. Even if Green is cleared to play, starter Antonio Gates should continue to eat up targets.

Gates has 84 targets in 14 games (6.0 per game), compared to Green's 23 targets in 12 games (1.9 per game).
