08:39 AM ET 12.14 | Antonio Gates has been assured he's not going to further damage his injured foot, but it has limited him on the field. While he led the Chargers with six receptions for 73 yards against Oakland on Dec. 5, he was disappointed he couldn't get open sometimes and felt he had hurt the team by not being able to get past a defender on a crucial third down catch. ... Gates said it has not been decided if he will play Thursday against the San Francisco 49ers. If he doesn't face the 49ers, the upside is there would be 21 days between the Raiders game and the Chargers' Dec. 26 game at Cincinnati. "That's the thought process," Gates said. ... "I'm going to play it by ear to see what they feel is best for this team."
