Several key Chargers miss practice
The San Diego Chargers remain without several key players as they prepare to face the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
Missing Thursday's practice were wide receiver Malcom Floyd (hip), nose tackle Antonio Garay (hip), outside linebacker Shaun Phillips, right guard Louis Vasquez (ankle), left tackle Marcus McNeill (stinger), reserve guard Tyronne Green (hand) and cornerback Marcus Gilchrist (hamstring).
Tight end Antonio Gates, who has been bothered this season by plantar fasciitis in his right foot, missed the practice as part of his scheduled rest. Safety Darrell Stuckey (thigh) was limited.
The Chargers (4-5) have lost four straight games, their longest losing streak since opening the 2003 season with five straight losses.
The Bears (6-3) have won four straight games.
