San Diego Chargers LB Manti Te’o still is not on the practice field. Although he has been doing work on the side field, he has not been able to join the rest of his teammates in practice. He likely will be sitting out the first game of the season and watching Bront Bird take his spot in the starting lineup.
The anticipation of seeing Manti in the middle will have to wait. He hasn’t practiced since August 8, nursing a foot injury.
Get ready to see the Bird in the middle chasing down the Texans running backs. Hope he makes a big impact in the game. I would love to have Te’o there, but he has missed too much time already.
