Remember when the San Diego Chargers coaches wouldn’t tell us anything about Manti Te’o’s busted foot at the beginning of the year? The foot injury that had him in a walking boot for the first few weeks of the season and we were all tripping trying to figure out what was wrong with him? Is it possible that he broke his foot?

Sure sounds like he broke his foot at the beginning of the year and just had surgery in order to finally fix it up. Check out some photos from Manti Te’o’s Instagram.

So Manti Te’o played the whole season on a broken foot? Interesting!!!!!

That has to hinder a linebacker a little bit… A LOT A BIT! Especially a linebacker that is not fast in the first place!

Much respect for Manti for sticking it out for the whole season. He started out the season slowly and then picked it up as he spent more time on the field. We now know that he will play through pain and will get on the field as soon as he can.

Looking forward to Manti playing next season without the hindering injury to see what he will be able to do on defense. He has a lot of potential and should be fun to watch next season.

How long did the Chargers and Manti know about this injury?

Some people are unable to see the Instagram embedded images, so here are some screen shots of it:
