Chargers TE Antonio Gates Is Feeling Better

San Diego Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, who is working through a bout of plantar fasciitis, is feeling “much better” but won’t know until he starts to push it whether he will be full-go in training camp.

"It’s a lot better," Gates said. "It was bothering me to walk around. Once I start back running I will kind of get an idea. Then I can determine whether the foot is healthy enough."

Still a few days shy of the three weeks he was told to rest, Gates has been attending meetings and then rehabbing inside while his teammates are on the field. He finishes his time at Chargers Park each day by watching the end of practice.

Fantasy Impact: 

Fantasy owners will need to keep tabs on how Gates is doing as the summer progresses, but as long as he's healthy he remains one of the best fantasy players at his position.
