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.
The report says Alexander has required "multiple" surgeries on his right knee because of infection after undergoing a second reconstruction of his ACL in January. As a result, Alexander might not be able to play in 2014. He is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
Alexander had the first ACL surgery in August and suffered complications, which caused a second surgery in January. He then had an infection that forced Alexander to receive intensive antibiotic treatment as well as the subsequent surgeries.
Alexander, 25, already had undergone five surgeries on his left knee dating back to before he entered the NFL in 2010.
San Diego forced two turnovers, including an acrobatic interception by safety Eric Weddle, and got a sack from linebacker Melvin Ingram. The Chargers have a chance for another strong defensive performance when they host the Chiefs in the regular-season finale.
Floyd continues to recover from a neck injury suffered in September. His participation in the offseason workouts will be more limited than most of his teammates, according to the report.
The report also added that no decision has been made whether Floyd will be able to continue playing. For weeks, Floyd has been running and lifting. While the injury did not require surgery, it demanded a long recovery. Risk of re-injury will be assessed before any decision about Floyd's return to the field is made.
Ghee has had trouble staying healthy since being a third-round pick in 2010. He had appeared in just 23 games in four seasons, recording 17 tackles without an interceptions.
McCoy said his background after working for John Fox in Carolina is using multiple running backs.
"You get in there, you get on a little bit of a roll and you’re going to stay in there," McCoy said. "Donald is a perfect fit for our system, and that’s why we went after him and got him. He understands what we want to do offensively, not only in the passing game but in the running game and pass protection. ... We'll let Donald come in there and show us what he can do, and we'll try to take advantage of what he does best and go with the flow of the game."
Te'o missed the first three games of his rookie season with a foot injury, which apparently remained a problem. He finished this year with 71 tackles and four passes defensed. He left the playoff loss to Denver with a concussion.
Telesco said similar statements back in late March to the station. Brown was signed this spring to a three-year deal by Telesco, who helped scout Brown when he was with the Colts in 2009.
“My biggest thing is I need to be on the field for all 16 games,” Butler said, per ESPN.com. “Obviously, the last two years, both years, I missed four games because of the same injury. To me, that’s unacceptable.
“You get paid to play all 16 games, and so my biggest thing is now I fully understand what I have to do this offseason to make sure that, come the regular season, I’m ready to go -- and that’s all 16 games, along with the playoff run we intend to make.”
Novak finishes the season 35 of 39 on field goals.
"He should start off where he finished and have the type of year he had last year," McCoy said, per ESPN.com. "Our team will only improve. There were a lot of first times for our team also, in a new system. There's things you're learning -- you practice things all the time but they may not be against a certain coverage.
"He was learning as we were going during the year. As time goes along you put in a new play, maybe it's a play out of a new formation, or someone else is running it, Ladarius [Green] is running it versus one of the receivers. You're still learning about one another and your system every week."
Allen had 71 catches for 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns last year.
"When you’re a young player and had the success he did, now he’s got a bulls-eye on his back," McCoy said. "Everybody is going to know where he is every play. The success he had, that comes with the territory. And that’s a good problem to have. Then again, now you have to get in that much better shape. Now you’re going to see a double team here and there. You’re going to see the best corner on you. You have to work that much harder now. Now it’s all the little fine details that we’ve been talking about that you might have gotten away with in the past. Now when you get matched up with the best corners in the league you have to be at your best every week because they’re going to know where you are."
Brown, 32, is an impending free agent.
Green finished his second year with 17 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns, but the majority of that production came during the final seven games of the year.
"What happened with him last year he made the most of his opportunities," McCoy said. "Early in the year, they were limited. As time went along, and as an offense, you always evolve to what your players do best. Being together for the first time, there were some things we were still learning about our team. It takes time. And Ladarius made the most of his opportunities. When he was in at the right time, he was continuing to make plays. You wish you would have done that a little earlier."
McCoy said he plans to use Green in tandem with Antonio Gates again in 2014.
Mike McCoy was angered when Troutman reacted to Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict stepping on his foot by shoving him and earning a 15-yard penalty.
"You have to be poised under pressure," McCoy told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "It's something whether you get baited or not, it's unacceptable. That's what I told him instantly after the play happened. ... It really hurt our football team."
They placed three players on injured reserve -- safety Dwight Lowery (concussion), offensive tackle Luke Joeckel (ankle) and tight end Allen Reisner (knee). Reisner has been designated to return, while Lowery and Joeckel are out for the season.
The Jaguars also claimed Sam Young off waivers, promoted offensive tackle DeMarcus Love from the practice squad and signed guard Jacques McClendon. Lastly, the Jaguars signed Jeremy Ebert to the practice squad and waived receiver Tobias Palmer from the practice squad.
Defensive linemen Lawrence Guy (toe), Sean Lissemore (toe) and Corey Liuget (knee) along with defensive back Shareece Wright (foot) and linebacker Jarret Johnson (hand) were all able to play through their issues.
The others are wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu (hamstring), tackle D.J. Fluker (knee), defensive ends Corey Liuget (shin) and Lawrence Guy (toe), center Nick Hardwick (neck) and long snapper Mike Windt (ankle).
Telesco said basically the same things back in late March to the station.
Brown was signed this spring to a three-year deal by Telesco, who helped scout Brown when he was with the Colts in 2009. But Mathews established himself as the team's primary back, meeting long-awaited expectations with a 1,255-yard, six-score season with another 189 yards and a score through the air.
Freeney appeared in just four games last season due to a torn quad. He had two tackles and one half sack.
Brown was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but returned to full practice Friday. Hardwick was limited Thursday, but practiced in full Friday. Addae, Guy and Te'o were full participants every day this week.
