Week 9 Texans Injury Report: Four Chargers, Including Antonio Gates, Doubtful

Rotoworld's Evan Silva notes that not a single player that has been listed as doubtful for the Chargers under Norv Turner has wound up playing. Good news for the Texans here, who could be seeing the Chargers without  four of their top five receivers last year, as Vincent Jackson still will be sitting out. Here are your full lists from the man, the myth, the Nick Scurfield: 

Texans
...
Questionable
LB Xavier Adibi (hamstring/DNP), DT Shaun Cody (knee/DNP), TE Owen Daniels (hamstring/DNP), DT Earl Mitchell (ankle/full), DE Jesse Nading (ankle/DNP)
Probable
LB Kevin Bentley (knee/full), G Mike Brisiel (knee/full), TE Garrett Graham (shoulder/full), WR Andre Johnson (ankle/limited), LB Stanford Keglar (thigh/full), CB Karl Paymah (wrist/full), LB Darryl Sharpton (ankle/full), DE Mario Williams (hip/limited)

Chargers
Out
K Nate Kaeding (rt. groin/DNP)
Doubtful
WR Malcolm Floyd (hamstring/DNP), TE Antonio Gates (toe/DNP), WR Legedu Naanee (hamstring/DNP), LB Brandon Siler (foot/DNP)
Questionable
LB Larry English (foot/limited), WR Richard Goodman (hamstring/limited)
Full Participation in Practice
LB Kevin Burnett (shoulder/full), G Kris Dielman (neck/full), CB Quetin Jammer (no injury/DNP)

With Mitchell getting full practice time and Cody not, it will be interesting to see who gets more snaps at defensive tackle this week. Andre Johnson and Mario Williams should both play through their injuries, as usual. 

With Nate Kaeding out, former Texan Kris Brown gets to return to town. I'm sure that might send some Houston fans into conditioned booing at some point during the game.
