Antonio Gates misses second day of practice with knee issue - Eric Williams
"Coming back we know he’s still fresh off of missing the first four weeks," Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich said. "And he knows what it’s like to prepare. So if there’s a chance he plays on Sunday, if anybody can be ready with a minimal amount of practice time, it’s Antonio."

Chargers HC Mike McCoy: "You’ve got a challenge on both edges" -
"You’ve got a challenge on both edges, so you’ve got to make sure everybody understands the scheme and how we’re blocking things. You’ve got to neutralize them to a certain extent. All the great players in this league, they make their plays. You’ve always got to know where they are and how they’re doing certain things. So you’ve got to do a great job of having good balance in the game and try to take advantage of what we can do."

"I know that 2-3 is not what we wanted it to be. We had hopes it’d be better. It’s what we’ve earned to this point. We have a lot of football in front of us, so we’ll focus on the road in front of us, the work that we have ahead of us and make sure that we’re learning what we can from the previous five weeks of experience." - Raiders Head Coach Jack Del Rio

"I’m just glad to be back," Dunlap said.  "It felt good to be out there again."
