San Diego Places TE Antonio Gates on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform List

The Chargers have placed tight end Antonio Gates on the physically-unable-to-perform list, which allows him to do rehab work and take part in team meetings but not practice.

Gates has plantar fasciitis in his right foot and has done sprints and agility works on a side field since training camp opened Thursday. Gates missed six games last year because of the plantar fasciitis, inflammation in the heel and the bottom of the foot and his injury also included a tear in the foot.

The Chargers also placed outside linebacker Larry English, who is coming off foot surgery, on the list. English, a first-round draft pick in 2009, started two games last season.
