Cox was a major bust. He had 38 tackles and one interception last season after signing a four-year, $20 million deal.
All had been listed as probable except McClain, who was questionable.
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.
Denver converted 9 of 13 third downs and controlled the ball for more than 35 minutes.
The Chargers DST forced two turnovers, cornerback Richard Marshall recovering tight end Julius Thomas' fumble and linebacker Donald Butler intercepting a deflected pass in the end zone. The unit produced no sacks.
San Diego allowed backup quarterback Chase Daniel, making his first career start, to post a 99.3 passer rating and run for 59 yards, too. The Chargers DST will try to redeem itself in the wild card game at Cincinnati next Sunday.
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.
"It's not quite there yet, but it's getting there," Floyd said. "There's really no timetable. It's pretty much just basing it on how I am and how well I feel. ... There's still a little discomfort in there, but it's a lot better. ... I'm getting there. It just felt good to start running again and becoming more active. I'm feeling a lot better as far as that goes."
All had been listed as probable except McClain, who was questionable.
Woodhead, who got more carries than usual due to Ryan Mathews' ankle injury, will return to the Chargers in 2014 as he's under contract for $1.75 million.
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.
“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.
Rivers did all that playing behind a line that used five left tackles, four left guards and a rookie right tackle. Rivers ranked fourth in the league in yards per attempt and passing touchdowns.
Rivers, 32, is signed through 2015.
The PFWA also named Allen to the All-Rookie team. Allen had a strong season for San Diego, catching 71 balls for 1046 yards and eight touchdowns.
Lissemore was listed as questionable on the injury report due to a shoulder injury. The other six players are healthy scratches.
Brown, 32, is an impending free agent.
"They are both two big parts of our offense," Telesco said. "Ladarius does give us some of that big play ability. With that long stride, it's deceiving how fast he really is. He can run away from defensive backs and has made some big plays for us this year. ... He definitely has a role moving forward and obviously, we know what Antonio brings to us. We need both those guys."
Green finished with 17 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns. Fifteen of his 17 catches were good for either a first down or a touchdown.
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).
The typical recovery from the injury lasts four-to-six weeks, but Mathews didn't miss a game. Mathews first injured the ankle December 22 against Oakland, but was able to return to the game. He received a normal workload the following week, so it wasn't serious initially. But the injury got worse in the playoffs, forcing Mathews to stop practicing. He had just 26 yards against the Broncos, and did not play after halftime.
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.
