The Chargers are 2-1 on the year, but have struggled through two victories, as Philip Rivers has not looked good thus far. Perhaps part of Rivers lack of success is the absence of tight end Antonio Gates, who he'll have to live without again on Sunday, as the tight end is inactive against Miami.

This is the second-straight week Gates will be sidelined with plantar fasciitis, a foot injury he's struggled with for the past several years.

All eight of the passes Gates has caught in 2011 came in Week 1, as well -- he went catchless against the Patriots and was inactive against the Chiefs in Week 3.

In fact, the injury's been so debilitating that there were questions as to whether or not Gates should retire -- he definitely said he wasn't going anywhere, however.

As someone who has had plantar fascitis, let me tell you one thing: it is absolutely brutal. It's like a constant ache below the arch of your foot, making the simple act of walking around incredibly painful. That Gates can even attempt to play football is beyond impressive.
