Antonio Gates to see foot specialist

Antonio Gates, Kerry Rhodes AP

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates can’t shake his foot injuries.  He’s looking to a foot specialist once again for answers to why he can’t seem to stay healthy.

It gets frustrating,” Gates told Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune. “… [Seeing more specialists] I think I get the satisfaction of knowing that it’s not anything that would hinder me from my career.”

The question for Gates:  Should he sit out a handful of weeks to get “100%” or try to handle the week-to-week pain?

For Gates and the Chargers, it’s a question they are getting too familiar with.

    His foot problems started when he was hit while gettting up off the ground, and still not down. It was the Titans playoff game from 3-4 years ago.

    It wasn’t a cheap shot, just unfortunate situation.

    Gotta assume they play the Jets next week?

  14. thrillheaux says: Sep 27, 2011 12:00 AM

    Maybe he should give Michelle Ryan a call BADABOOM!!!

  15. greenbowlpacker12 says: Sep 27, 2011 12:00 AM

    He should go see Rex Ryan, he’s the best foot specialist there is. His feet will feel better in no time!

  16. balzosteel says: Sep 27, 2011 12:06 AM

    Podiatrist, Coach, Snack Aficianado…….Rex Ryan ladies and gentlemen; let’s have a round of applause!

  17. kcrobert10 says: Sep 27, 2011 12:08 AM

    As a chiefs fan I can’t say how good it is not to have him out there. As a football fan this sucks he is truly one of the best. Don’t think he is going to make the hall unless he gets more numbers. Still think tony g is the best of all time….

  18. stampnhawk says: Sep 27, 2011 12:09 AM

    Real question is, does Rex have time to see Antonio this week?

  19. patsloft says: Sep 27, 2011 12:12 AM

    I love Gates but now in week 4 he is looking for a foot specialist?? Come On Mannn!

  20. ct122333 says: Sep 27, 2011 12:14 AM

    Is the foot specialist rex ryan?

  21. sundog05 says: Sep 27, 2011 12:27 AM

    Rex Ryan must be excited?

  22. MichaelEdits says: Sep 27, 2011 12:29 AM

    Cue the Rex Ryan jokes

  23. atwatercrushesokoye says: Sep 27, 2011 12:33 AM

    It’s kind of funny that he says that this is “something that won’t hinder his entire career” meanwhile he’s been dealing with foot problems in 3 of the last 4 years, it doesn’t seem like this is something that he’ll ever really get rid of.

  24. ctiggs says: Sep 27, 2011 12:36 AM

    bring micheal crabtree with you

  25. atmedic8daily says: Sep 27, 2011 12:53 AM

    Very impressive run on Rex jokes! I’ll smoke to that

  26. drgfri says: Sep 27, 2011 1:06 AM

    Time for Rex to change his underpants….

  27. worstwebsiteever says: Sep 27, 2011 1:13 AM

    (insert 1000th Rex Ryan joke here)

  28. htowntexan13 says: Sep 27, 2011 1:22 AM

    Somewhere in New Jersey, REx Ryan is saying: “OH YEEAAHH!!”

  29. gpack17 says: Sep 27, 2011 2:06 AM

    I feel like I’m a little late to the party, but I gotta take my shot, so…Rex Ryan?

  30. mrcosio says: Sep 27, 2011 3:46 AM

    I thought I was so hilarious when I thought I’d make a Rex Ryan joke but suddenly the comments :/

  31. swagjag says: Sep 27, 2011 5:28 AM

    Norv Turner’s face remains a lost cause.

  32. joetoronto says: Sep 27, 2011 5:51 AM

    Will Gates play this week?

    Roll the dice, as per usual.

  33. johnnyglutes says: Sep 27, 2011 5:52 AM

    Wow, all you losers can stop posting your not funny Rex Ryan jokes any day now. That crap is old.

  34. scudbot says: Sep 27, 2011 8:03 AM

    Queue the misspelled worthless “cue the…” posts.

  35. bh83 says: Sep 27, 2011 8:57 AM

    Doesn’t anybody read the comments here? Great Rex Ryan references, all 73 of them, original.

  36. sharpdog says: Sep 27, 2011 1:40 PM

    These comments will really keep Rex on his toes …

    Gates may turn into the Chargers’ Achilles heel …

    Without Gates the Chargers face frequent defeet …

    Embarrassing that no one can be more creative than the Rex Ryan jokes 50 times in a row, and I can’t stand hearing FAT REX flap his jaws on every local media outlet here.

    The Bill Walton joke probably went over most of these 19 year olds’ heads, but goodness, the Rex jokes are lame.
