Manti Te’o is out on the field in pads and is practicing. Can’t wait to see him on the field in the middle of our defense making plays. In the two games that he has missed so far, we have had 2 different starting linebackers in the middle.

Bront Bird got the first start in week 1 and Reggie Walker got the start in week 2. Hopefully we will see a different middle backer manning the middle for the Chargers in week 3 by the name of Manti Te’o.

The defense is hurting in the middle right now also. Donald Butler was injured in the game against the Philadelphia Eagles and is not practicing today. It would be really tough for the defense to be missing both their starting middle backers against Chris Johnson and the Tennessee Titans.

We should know more about Donald Butler’s injury later today.
