Two of the Chargers most important offensive players, TE Antonio Gates and WR Malcom Floyd, are inactive for tonight’s game vs. the 49ers, as reported by the NFL Network.

Gates, as we’ve well-documented, is suffering from plantar fasciitis, and though he played in Weeks 12 and 13, he’ll have missed the past two games with his absence tonight. Look for Randy McMichael to get plenty of time in his place.

Meanwhile, Floyd, who’s dealing with a bad hamstring, simply didn’t have enough time to get healthy during the Chargers’ short week of preparation. Fortunately for San Diego, WR Vincent Jackson will play today.
