Gates, Bailey among inactives

As expected, the San Diego Chargers will be without tight end Antonio Gates (foot) and cornerback Quentin Jammer (hamstring) Sunday against visiting Miami.

I would not be surprised if Gates doesn’t return until after the Chargers’ Oct. 16 bye. Rookie Marcus Gilchrist will play for Jammer.

Denver left cornerback Champ Bailey is inactive for the third straight game with a hamstring injury. He warmed up Sunday morning in Green Bay, but the team decided he is not ready to play.

Elvis Dumervil, though, is active. He has missed the past two games with a shoulder injury. Running back Knowshon Moreno is also active after he missed the past two games with a hamstring injury. He is expected to back up Willis McGahee against the Packers.

Meanwhile, the Denver Post reports that the Broncos have a plan to see reserve quarterback Tim Tebow in some packages Sunday at Green Bay.
