Since we haven't talked about anything health-related at all lately, I wanted pass along some news on San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates. We mentioned the other day that he's been playing with a foot injury that results in a feeling as painful as a "hot knife sticking in your foot."

The good news for the Chargers -- and bad news for the Kansas City Chiefs -- is that Gates says he will indeed play, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

"Considering how important this game is and what this mean to our whole season I'd like to that, speaking in the third person, Antonio Gates will play."

He says something would have to "really, really be hurting" in order for him to miss this game so it sounds like his foot is improving because, from what it sounds like, he was "really, really" hurting the last few weeks.

While we're on the injury front, the KC Chiefs had two guys not named Matt Cassel on the injury report this week. Kendrick Lewis was limited after missing last week's game with an ankle injury and Donald Washington didn't practice with an ankle injury. Washington was reported to have been in some sort of boot earlier this week.
