Chargers TE Antonio Gates says he's not 100-percent

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Though he played twice in five days, Antonio Gates acknowledged Monday he still feels a hamstring injury he sustained in Game 2.

“I’m not 100 percent,” said the eight-time Pro Bowler, “but it’s good enough for what I am trying to get done as a team.”

Gates, 36, said the injury suffered versus Jacksonville, in pursuit of an end-zone pass Sept. 18, was the first hamstring injury of his career.

Fantasy Impact: 

With Gates in a reduced role, rookie Hunter Henry has produced several big plays, including a 59-yard reception at Oakland and a scheme-abetted, 5-yard scoring catch opposite an above-average cornerback, Chris Harris Jr. Hunter remains the guy to play at TE, at least as long as Gates isn't 100-percent.
