Manti Te'o to miss next week of practice with foot sprain
After having very little impact in the Chargers first preseason game, rookie linebacker Manti Te'o has suffered a foot injury.
Te’o’s advancement in the NFL now will be put on hold temporarily, as the team announced Saturday that the second-round draft pick had sprained his foot and would sit out the next week of practice.
Te’o was seen Saturday wearing a walking boot on his right foot at San Diego’s practice, so even though the team said it came out of its first game relatively unscathed, Te’o is one exception. But as long as he’s not out for too long, you have to figure Te’o will keep his starting inside linebacker job.
While the injury is unfortunate for Te’o, perhaps he can take solace that he’ll have time to work on his other job: that of a swim teacher.
