Chargers tight end Antonio Gates will be playing with a heavy heart this year

San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates will be playing with a very heavy heart this year, after watching his you ger sister die this summer.

The All-Pro tight end, beginning his 12th season with the San Diego Chargers, sat at his locker Tuesday and reminisced about his 22-year-old sister, Pam, who died last month after a three-year battle with lupus.

She had been in a coma for several weeks after suffering her second heart attack. Gates missed all the Chargers’ off-season workouts so he and his family his parents and two other siblings could be at Pam’s bedside at the Cleveland Clinic.

Expect the veteran to ball out in 2014.
