Late Wednesday we shared the news that tight end Antonio Gates could miss San Diego’s Week 9 contest against Houston due to plantar fascia (foot). Because it’s still fun to dump on the Chargers (and because, knowing the Chargers, we probably won’t get a chance to dump on them for much longer), we feel it’s necessary to point out that starting receivers Malcom Floyd and Legedu Naanee are both still out with hamstring injuries.
Neither wideout practiced Wednesday, and neither is expected to play Sunday. Backup Craig Davis was also put on Injured Reserve this week, and recently-arrived star Vincent Jackson must sit out another two games.
Thus, Philip Rivers could take the field Sunday with his top three receiving targets (non running back receiving targets, that is) being Patrick Crayton, Seyi Ajirotutu and Randy McMichael. That’s a starting trio that would draw nervous looks of skepticism even if this were just a preseason game.
Fortunately for the Chargers, they’re facing a Texans pass defense that ranks dead last in the NFL.

Normally something like a starting quarterback change would get its own post, but in the case of the Cardinals, what’s the point? If you still care, they’ve given the job back to Derek Anderson.
For the second time in three years, the Chargers have placed wide receiver Craig “Buster” Davis on IR. It doesn’t bode well that he’s a former first-round pick and yet hardly anyone has noticed this move. (It actually happened Tuesday!)
