Manti Te’o Watch: Out Of Walking Boot

Why is this walking boot becoming more and more of a story? Probably because we didn’t expect him to be sitting on the sideline for so dang long. That walking boot is off! He is on the side field doing some stretches, but he hasn’t joined in on practices yet. This is good news for his chances at making it back for the opener.

He needs to get on the field and join the team in practice before we can make that bold statement though. He has been kicking it for way too long. Time for him to get those reps and get ready to make plays against the Texans. Bront Bird has been filling in for him in the meantime, but there are big expectations out of this kid.

Corey Liuget is not practicing, but he is doing some running. I have no doubts that he will be on the field for Monday Night Football. He is a gamer. Damik Scafe is wearing a walking boot now though.
