Bet on the NFL San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates is questionable for Sunday night's game with the Indianapolis Colts after practicing for the second time in six weeks. He has missed the last two games while nursing a toe/foot injury. Gates was limited in practice on Thursday but spent Wednesday and Friday's sessions in the training room. Coach Norv Turner told the San Diego Union Tribune on Friday that the Gates didn’t get worse, but it doesn't help him to go two days in a row, so they are going to see where he's at Sunday. Also questionable this weekend are WR Malcom Floyd (hamstring), S Steve Gregory (shoulder), DE Travis Johnson (shoulder), CB Donald Strickland (hip), G Louis Vasquez (neck) and TE Kris Wilson (back).
Floyd was limited in practice on Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. He missed three games earlier this season with the same injury.
Turner said of Floyd that for what he did on a limited basis, Malcom was all right. So they are treating him like they are treating Gates in that they will see where he's at on Sunday. Wide receiver Patrick Crayton (wrist) has been ruled out, while RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) is likely to miss his second game in a row. He didn't participate in practice all week and and is listed as doubtful.
Fullback Jacob Hester (hamstring), TE Randy McMichael (hamstring) and WR Legedu Naanee (hamstring) are listed as probable. Naanee will likely play for the first time since Week 5. The Colts leading receiver, Reggie Wayne, is listed as questionable with a knee injury. He did not participate in practice on Thursday but was back on the gridiron for a full practice on Friday. Wayne hasn't missed a game this season.
Sportsbook listed others as questionable are LB Gary Brackett (toe), TE Brody Eldridge (rib), RB Mike Hart (ankle), RB Javarris James (knee), LB Clint Session (elbow) and DB Justin Tryon (foot).
