SAN DIEGO (AP) – A person with knowledge of the situation says San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te’o has a fractured foot and is expected to miss significant playing time.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday night because the team hasn’t made the news public.
Te’o was hurt in Sunday’s 22-10 victory at Buffalo. He has been bothered by foot injuries. He missed the first three games of his rookie season in 2013 with what the team said was a sprained right foot. He had surgery on the foot in January.
Te’o, the team’s second-round draft pick in 2013, missed time during training camp after spraining his left foot in the second exhibition game.
The latest injury was first reported by the U-T San Diego newspaper.
