San Diego Chargers All-Pro tight end Antonio Gates' foot is bothering him enough that he's going to visit a specialist. Gates told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he remains upbeat that his foot will settle down.

“I think physically you get an idea about where you’re at by going out and playing and running around. Prior to the Patriots game, I felt like I could still be who I am. The way I was running around in New England … Practice wise, I’m running around, I feel fast. So, to me, I just always, you know, I’ve always been optimistic on everything.”

He's going to see a specialist today.

“It gets frustrating,” Gates said. "(Seeing more specialists) I think I get the satisfaction of knowing that it’s not anything that would hinder me from my career.”
