Manti Te’o Still Not Practicing

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.

    Weak sauce. Don’t want to rush it, but dang… can we get him healthy already? Or, just tell us what the injury is, so we can form a realistic timetable for his return. It’s not like anyone is going to have some huge advantage, because they know in advance. I don’t get all the mystery surrounding this. Seems counterproductive to the effort they put into keeping him out of the media earlier this offseason.

      foot sprains can take sometime to heal if their not the minor. leveon bell sprained his foot out at least 4 weeks.

      Or maybe he’s there first bust, and they’re trying to keep it quiet. sssssshshshhhhhhh. ;)

    Man I’m jones’in for me some Manti’. Awesome use of the english language aye? But for real, this shit must be killing dude. I know he is hungry to get out their and shut all of the pie holes up. We sure could use him in this one though, he’ll be alright, just needs some playing time is all, hard to get that from where he’s been standing. So, who else was disgusted at the Ravens showing last night?? Damn.
