Manti Te'o Officially Out For Sunday's Game vs Eagles

The wait for Manti Te’o will have to wait for another week. The anticipation is killing me. I would love to see the kid on the field, but he has to recover from that ankle sprain. Sometimes those things can take some time to heal. I do believe that it is an ankle sprain though. I know there has been some discussion among the fans thinking that the team is covering up some other injury, but those sprains can take some time. Sprains can take longer than broken bones to heal and it is obvious that it was not a minor sprain for Manti.

Will he be ready for the following week? If I had to guess, I would say yes. I don’t know if he would get a full plate of work in that game, but I think he will be back out there. He has been running around without that boot on for a couple of weeks now and has been doing more and more work as time goes. I think he should be able to test that foot out in a full practice now. I think it will be that time in week 3. Hopefully we will have a win under our belt by that time.

    Ya a sprain can be worse than a broken bone, I had 2 sprained foots that took me 4 months to heal

    I had a foot sprain and would still commit to my 5 mile run 3 days a week. Staying in shape comes with injury. Te’o is getting paid so he should suck it up and play the fricken game!

    Sounds like he needs to borrow one of his girlfriend Lennay’s tampons

    No one is more upset than Te’o. I would rather he heals up – then comes back and gives us 100 %.
    Nice to see Bront stud up in his absence. If Te’o had put up those numbers -we’d be calling him a rock star. Bird earned my respect. I want him to go Eagle hunting.

    Bird played TERRIBLE!!! He got 14 tackles because the Texans targeted him almost every play. Go back and see how many of those tackles were 5-10 yards down field. Ask the Texans tight ends how much of a stud Bird was while they burned him for touchdowns

    • Alter Ego

      I disagree.
