Chargers’ Gates, Mathews, Floyd miss practice

A number of key Chargers missed practice on Wednesday. And to make matters worse, it was raining in San Diego, too.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates, RB Ryan Mathews and WR Malcom Floyd were absent from practice Wednesday, and even coach Norv Turner conceded that missing the first day makes it harder for the rest of the week. Although he was optimistic that Gates and Mathews are going to return to practice Thursday.

Turner, of course, was initially hopeful that Gates would be able to play Sunday against the Patriots. Floyd is most likely going to miss this week.

The Chargers also signed K Kris Brown, indicating that Nate Kaeding will not play.
