Chargers | Antonio Gates unlikely for Week 12

Fri, 26 Nov 2010 18:28:47 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (foot) did not practice Friday, Nov. 26, according to Scott Bair of The North County Times. Gates is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts, but he is not expected to play.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a good idea to expect to rely on Gates this week, once again. The Chargers have the Sunday night game, so your alternatives are extremely limited after that if you bank on playing him. Randy McMichael (hamstring) might be an acceptable very deep alternative; however, although he's expected to play, he's a little gimpy.

Dolphins | McMichael frustrated with blocking role

Fri, 15 Sep 2006 20:42:39 -0700

Armando Salguero, of the Miami Herald, reports Miami Dolphins TE Randy McMichael was frustrated with the blocking role he was used in during the Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. McMichael said, "I'll give you the true answer: It's frustrating. Of course you want to go out and make plays, and I want to catch balls. But there's only one ball, and sometimes your number is called to help the offensive line so that [QB] Daunte Culpepper can get the ball off." McMichael is confident his opportunities to catch the ball will increase because offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey called several plays designed for McMichael against the Steelers. "That's one thing about Coach Mularkey as the offensive coordinator that's different from past coordinators. He did call some plays for me. But the defense stopped the plays at the particular time. I can't complain about the play-calling. And when they call the play for me to stay in and block, I have to do that, too."
