(CBS) — Chargers Tight End Antonio Gates’ status for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins is once again in doubt with a lingering foot issue.

The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that Gates will see a specialist on Tuesday to get a furthur opinion on his foot.

“I don’t want to be just, you know, just go out there and just be out there. I want to be able to run and do things that I can do.”

Gates will also meet with the Doctor in North Carolina who operated on his foot last season.
