Turner on Gates: `It’s a day-to-day thing’

FOXBOROUGH — San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner just conducted a teleconference with the New England media in advance of Sunday’s game vs. the Patriots at Qualcomm Stadium and indicated that tight end Antonio Gates (toe) was a day-to-day proposition for the game.

“We truly are on a day-to-day [basis] and I don’t anticipate Antonio practicing today,” Turner said. “I hope he can get some work tomorrow. That would help a great deal in clearing up where he’s at, but it’s a day-to-day thing.”

“Right now, I’m just hopeful that he’ll be able to play,” Turner added. “If not, we’ll have to make plans if he was not able to play.”
