Chargers’ Gates OK after seeing foot specialist

Chargers All-Pro TE Antonio Gates experienced pain in his foot the last few weeks and, as a result, wasn’t at the team facility Wednesday. Rather, he was in North Carolina to see a foot specialist, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Thursday.

Not to worry, though, Chargers fans. Apparently, Gates should be fine:

Antonio Gates was prescribed rest and rehab but should be full-go by training camp.

The Pro Bowl tight end was at today’s afternoon practice, watching and smiling after his quick trip to North Carolina.

Gates said that foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson told him he has a “minor form of plantar fasciitis that should ebb with a few weeks off. Gates will not work in tomorrow’s final minicamp practice and will skip the final four offseason coaching sessions, June 8-12.

Here’s some more news that came in late Thursday:

  • Former Cardinals safety Pat Tillman, who died in 2004 while serving in Afghanistan, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
