"He'll be questionable," San Diego coach Norv Turner said after the game of Gates' status for next Sunday against the Colts. "It might be better than that, it might not be that good."
"I took a hit," said Gates, who called the injury a dislocation. "At first, it didn't seem like a big deal. As I got up, it was weird. I tried to put pressure on it. We're searching for answers right now. I'm going to do everything I can to get back this week, but if not, we got guys in the locker room to get the job done."
