San Diego Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

It’s a safe bet that tight end Antonio Gates will play Sunday, though how much and how effectively his sprained toe will allow is not known.

Gates has started 85 straight regular-season games, longest on the team and has never missed a game (regular season or playoffs) due to injury.

"Part of me is waiting to see," the All-Pro tight end said Thursday after missing a second straight day of practice and emerging from the cold tub. "I've been in a situation where (early in the week) I didn't think I'd play and then I played. And I've been in other situations, well, there actually haven't been any other situations."
