Chargers TE Gates inactive vs. Raiders
Chargers tight end Antonio Gates is inactive against Oakland because of a knee injury.
Gates injured his left knee in the fourth quarter of last week’s loss to Green Bay and didn’t practice all week. He missed the first four games this season when he was suspended for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
In New York, Matt Cassel is making his first start for the Cowboys after replacing Brandon Weeden, who lost his only three starts after Tony Romo was injured in Week 2.
