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.''
