Manti Te’o out this week with foot injury

Chargers rookie linebacker Manti Te’o is dealing with a foot injury.

San Diego coach Mike McCoy said Te’o has a foot sprain and will be out this week. There’s no word on exactly what happened, but Te’o was spotted wearing a walking boot at the team’s facility and was not practicing this morning.

Te’o made his preseason debut on Thursday night against the Seahawks and played nine snaps, all with the first-string defense, but didn’t record any tackles or otherwise show up in the box score. Te’o played first and second downs and came off the field on third downs.

Now Te’o won’t be on the field at all for a week.

    would it really be shocking if he ends up being a good LB, but one who totally disappears in big games? It almost seems like fate

    With a name like Swaggy…yeah your comment wouldn’t be original and is old. Who still uses that word “swaggy”?

    Would someone please give me the over/under for Broadcasters’ Jokes this Season on the Fake-Dead Girlfriend?

    It’s actually a shoulder injury just pretending to be a foot injury over the phone.

    Can you say “bust”?

    He sprained his foot. He might miss a preseason game. If this was anyone else it wouldn’t matter at all.

  13. briang123 says: Aug 10, 2013 4:12 PM

    How will we know the difference?

  14. aaroncurryisbust says: Aug 10, 2013 4:42 PM

    He’s invisible on the field to pay tribute to his girlfriend.

    another overrated dame bust. a product of the dame hype machine and nothing more. sure it was a preseason game but if he had made 1 tackle you domers would have used that as proof he was an all pro line backer.

    Best moment was when Seahawks FB Michael Robinson drove him 7 yards upfield on a running play. I wonder if the rainbow Chargers still felt “pride” about trading up for this stiff on that play?

    this guy’s made of glass

  18. fnc111 says: Aug 10, 2013 6:16 PM

    Metal,

    Just like you’re doing for his career projection after nine plays. You have issues. Hypocritical much?

  19. billsfan1 says: Aug 10, 2013 6:27 PM

    The real irony is that even after one game the Chargers already realize that they cant leave him on the field for passing downs….

  20. jgater1981 says: Aug 10, 2013 6:28 PM

    There sure are some dumb people who post here, huh? You’re not funny. Don’t try to be funny. If you think you are, you’re not. Stop posting.

  21. jgater1981 says: Aug 10, 2013 6:29 PM

    To the idiot who said he’s made of glass, I’m ashamed to have the same name as you. You’re a moron.

    When was this? The Seahawks starting offense looked abysmal against the chargers 1st stringers. It was the Russell “Running For His Life” Wilson show. I did notice DJ Fluker absolutely destroying the Seattle 1st stringers off the right side during that 14 play drive…

    Is it really a foot injury or did somebody tell him he has a foot injury

  24. abninf says: Aug 10, 2013 8:22 PM

    He’s looking for a teammate willing to give him a foot massage.

  25. carlsbadboltfan says: Aug 10, 2013 8:29 PM

    I’ll take a sprained foot over a torn ACL any day.

  26. souldogdave says: Aug 10, 2013 9:08 PM

    put your 6 rings where the sun don’t shine

  27. jgater1981 says: Aug 10, 2013 10:01 PM

    Gibbskin. I will say it again. You’re not funny. You’re an idiot. Just stop. It might have sounded funny in your head, but it isn’t. You just sound like a moron with a terrible sense of humor.

    It’s not a stretch for him to have a foot injury. After all, he spends an awful lot of time inserting it in his mouth.
