 SAN DIEGO (AP) -Chargers All-Pro tight end Antonio Gates missed Wednesday's practice with a sore back but said he expects to return on Thursday.
``It tightened up today and we just decided not to see any action today,'' Gates said. ``I'll be back tomorrow.''
Gates was busy in Sunday's 14-3 win over Chicago, with nine catches for 107 yards. Among them was a 17-yard touchdown pass from LaDainian Tomlinson.
``I took a lot of hits, man,'' Gates said.
``It's a concern because he didn't practice, but I think he's all right,'' coach Norv Turner said. ``It'll be day-to-day. I'd assume he'll be able to do part of practice tomorrow.''
The Chargers play at New England on Sunday night, a rematch of a playoff game from last season. On Jan. 14, the Chargers, who had been an NFL-best 14-2, shockingly imploded and lost, 24-21.
Fullback Andrew Pinnock (hamstring) also missed practice Wednesday.
All-Pro linebacker Shawne Merriman missed part of practice with a sore Achilles' tendon.
Two other Chargers were hurt on Sunday, safety Clinton Hart (quad) and returner Darren Sproles (concussion) practiced.
