It’s a beautiful day out in San Diego this afternoon, and already we’re hearing some reports via Twitter that should be mentioned if you hadn’t heard:

  • Adam Schefter reports that “TE Antonio Gates‘ toe, the same toe he once had surgery on, is bothering him. Knows he shouldn’t play, but still will try. Very iffy.”
  • Ian Rapoport points out that there are plenty of Patriots fans on site at the stadium today, with photos of some of them tailgating that can be seen here.¬† There’s also a great shot from his press box of the field,¬†with what appears to be perfect weather.
  • A couple of player notes: Mike Reiss points out that CB Kyle Arrington, who is questionable with a groin injury,¬†was seen¬†stretching on the field in shorts.¬† Reiss also reports that WR Taylor Price, the team’s third-round pick, was seen jogging around the field. He has been inactive for first 5 games, and wonders if today will be the first time he sees action.

We’ll have the inactives once they become available.
