Evening AFC West notes

San Diego star tight end Antonio Gates didn’t practice for the second straight day with a nagging foot injury. However, he is expected to play in the Chargers’ crucial game against the Chiefs on Sunday. Receiver Legedu Naanee hasn’t practice the past two days with a nagging hamstring injury.

Linebacker Stephen Cooper (knee), receiver Vincent Jackson (calf) and running back Darren Sproles (concussion) all practiced on a limited basis Thursday after not working Wednesday. Their availability for Sunday’s game will be based on whether or not they can make continued progress. Jackson missed the Oakland game after being hurt on the second play of the Colts’ game. It was his season debut after a long holdout.
