News: Gates (hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bills, the Chargers' official site reports. Impact: Gates returned to a full practice Friday and is thus on track to suit up Sunday, on the heels of a three-TD effort in Week 2.(RotoWire, )

News: Gates (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Thursday, the Chargers' official site reports. Impact: We'll circle back on Gates' status Friday, but a probable designation for the tight end once the team's Week 3 injury report is released seems a likely outcome.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: Gates (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports. Impact: Gates -- who caught seven passes for 96 yards with three touchdowns in Week 2 -- is presumably being held back for maintenance purposes, however. We'll let you know if that assessment changes in the coming days.(RotoWire, )

News: Gates had seven catches for 96 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's win over Seattle. Impact: He caught all seven of his targets and has 17 through two games. At 34, he still looks to be a big part of this offense if he can stay healthy. Just keep in mind that he didn't surpass 50 yards receiving in any of his last eight games of 2013.(STATS, 4:46pm)
Sep 14, 2014
News: Gates (hamstring) caught seven passes on seven targets for 96 yards with three touchdowns in Sunday's 30-21 win over Seattle. Impact: Gates played like he was in his prime, abusing Seattle's secondary from the onset. His third touchdown was a thing of beauty, as he snatched the ball in the end zone with one hand. He also made a huge third-down catch in the final five minutes to extend the drive, chewing up more time. The talented Ladarius Green will one day be San Diego's top tight end, but for now, Gates is clearly still ahead of him.(RotoWire, )

News: Gates (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.   Impact: Gates, who caught six passes for 81 yards in Week 1, is out there if you need him this week, but his matchup appears less than optimal.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: Gates (hamstring, probable) was listed as a full practice participant Friday and is considered probable for Sunday's game. Impact: After sitting out Thursday's practice, Gates' return to a full session Friday now puts him on track to suit up Sunday against the Seahawks.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Gates (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, the Chargers' official site reports. Impact: Gates was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, and with no reported setback with his hamstring issue at this stage, we suspect that his absence Thursday was maintenance-related. A return to practice on Gates' part Friday would support that notion in advance of Sunday's game against the Seahawks.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Gates (hamstring) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: Gates played through his hamstring issue this past Monday against the Cards, catching six passes for 81 yards, and with no reported setbacks on that front, we suspect that the tight end's limited work Wednesday was maintenance-related.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 8, 2014
News: Gates (hamstring) caught six of his 10 targets for 81 yards Monday in Arizona. Impact: Despite being a game-time decision, Gates led the team in catches, targets, and yards. Because Ladarius Green had only two catches on two targets for 24 yards, it seems Gates is still the clear No. 1 TE on the team.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 8, 2014
News: Gates (hamstring) is active for Monday's game against the Cardinals, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports. Impact: Good news for those who gambled, despite the late kickoff, that Gates would be available Monday. If he suffers any setbacks or is limited at all in the contest, fellow TE Ladarius Green would be in line for added opportunities.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Sep 6, 2014
News: After being limited at practice Saturday, Gates is now listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Cardinals, the Chargers' official site reports. Impact: Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune indicates that Gates apparently tweaked his hamstring during Saturday morning's practice, thus clouding the tight end's status for Monday night's 10:20 ET kickoff. If Gates sits, or is limited Monday, then Ladarius Green would be in line for added Week 1 opportunities.(RotoWire, )
