Key players miss practice in San Diego

The San Diego Chargers had a daunting injury report Wednesday in preparation for Sunday’s home game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Tight end Antonio Gates (foot), receiver Malcom Floyd (groin), defensive end Corey Liuget (ankle), safety Bob Sanders (knee) and running back Mike Tolbert (calf) all missed practice Wednesday. That’s a pretty star-studded training room.

However, the San Diego Union Tribune reports that all but Floyd will likely play against the Chiefs. Floyd’s status will become more clear later in the week. Floyd, who battled injuries four much of last season, left early during the loss at New England Sunday.
