Three And Out: December 19, 2010


The Chargers may be without Antonio Gates for the remainder of the 2010 regular season, San Diego is looking for some help from St. Louis, and Coach Turner thinks Eric Weddle is deserving of a Pro Bowl.

ANTONIO GATES SIDELINED FOR THE REST OF THE REGULAR SEASON?

The San Diego Union-Tribune caught up with Chargers Tight End Antonio Gates, who confirmed that he is likely to miss the remainder of the regular season and is eying a potential return in the post-season.

"I think that's kind of the goal," Gates said.

Antonio Gates was putting up mind-boggling numbers in what could have likely been his best season of his career should he had remained healthy. But Gates had been battling an excruciatingly painful tear of the plantar fascia in his right foot, and continuing to play would only regress his ability to fully heal.

CHARGERS WILL BE ROOTING FOR THE ST. LOUIS RAMS SUNDAY

Now that the Chargers have taken care of business on their end by throttling the San Fransisco 49ers on Thursday night, they'll now be looking for help from the Rams as St. Louis takes on the Kansas City Chiefs.

When asked if he'll be rooting for the Rams this week, Chargers cornerback Quentin Jammer replied "We are huge St. Louis fans [this week]. Every time I talk to somebody, I tell them to root for St. Louis. My whole household will be rooting for St. Louis this weekend."

Similarly, Quarterback Philip Rivers echoed that sentiment. "I think I have a Rams hat or something laying around in my closet from the draft. I'll have to check."

ERIC WEDDLE DESERVING OF A PRO BOWL?

When Chargers Head Coach Norv Turner was asked who he felt was most deserving of a Pro Bowl (other than Philip Rivers), the first guy he mentioned was Safety Eric Weddle.

"It’s a shame in some ways because people talk about the slow start and obviously the record is what you are. That’s a slow start. But we have so many players that played great early and have had their best year. A guy like Eric Weddle. He didn’t get off to a slow start. He was playing great from the get-go and he’s had a great year and he’s a guy that I would love to see get some consideration. It’s hard when you haven’t been mentioned on that level but he’s playing at that level," said Turner.
