Antonio Gates back with team
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, who missed all of offseason workouts due to a family issue, reported for the start training camp Thursday, reports ESPN.

Gates is expected to remain the starter in San Diego, but he will share playing time in two-tight end sets with Ladarius Green.

'Very personal situation' keeps Antonio Gates from minicamp
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Tuesday that veteran tight end Antonio Gates wouldn't be at minicamp this week as he tends to a "very personal situation" in his hometown of Detroit. The Union-Tribune of San Diego reports that Gates hasn't been with the team at any practice open to the media this offseason.

"You tell him you love him, support him and you're with him," quarterback Philip Rivers said. " ... When the time is right and everything is taken care of, he'll be back. We look forward to getting him back."

Ladarius Green took the first-team reps in his place.

Chargers tight ends barely a factor
by Larry Hartstein |

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught two passes for 10 yards in the playoff loss at Denver. He was targeted four times.

Fellow tight end Ladarius Green caught two of his three targets for 7 yards, dropping a perfect throw that would have converted a key third down.

Gates, 33, is scheduled to return in 2014 at a $5 million base salary, while Green is slated to earn $570,000.

Chargers offensive studs fizzle against Bengals
by Chris Cwik |

The Chargers didn't need their normal output from their offensive stars to pull off a victory against the Bengals.

Eddie Royal was the most successful of the bunch, catching one pass for 33 yards. Keenan Allen managed to catch two balls, but only gained 21 yards. Antonio Gates was well-covered by the Bengals, and caught just one pass for 5 yards. The Chargers did not rely on the passing game, which meant none of their pass catchers had big games. Each player will look to rebound next week against Denver.

Antonio Gates seeking bounce-back against Bengals
by Marty Gitlin |

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates is hoping for vindication Sunday when his team plays at Cincinnati in a first-round playoff battle. His performance in Week 13 against the visiting Bengals left much to be desired.

Gates fumbled once and had another pass stripped from him for an interception in the 17-10 defeat. He managed just five catches for 41 yards.

"You've got to learn from it," he told the team website. "I've gone back and looked at the film since we're playing them, and they made some phenomenal plays. But that's not who I am and not what we stand for offensively. We hang our hats on protecting the football and that's something that I've always been a part of since I've been here."

Gates is coming off his most productive regular season since 2009, though his touchdowns were down. He caught 77 passes for 872 yards and four scores.
