    Manti Te'o not practicing, wearing protective boot over right foot. Chargers reported no injuries from game; too early to think it's serious.

    Le'Ron McClain audibly upset, visibility in pain. Chargers fullback limping off the field. Something lower body.

    Minutes earlier, Chris Gronkowski hobbled off field. Getting treatment. Both Chargers fullbacks getting worked on about 20 yards apart.

    Manti Te'o's march to be in an instant NFL starter has taken a slight detour.

    San Diego Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Saturday the middle linebacker will not practice for the next week -- and not play at Chicago on Thursday night -- because of a sprained foot. Te’o was hurt Thursday night against Seattle. He was in a walking boot Saturday.

    The injury is not considered serious. It is important that Te’o, a second-round pick, recovers and gets back on the field to play in the Chargers’ third preseason game, Aug. 24 at Arizona. The third preseason game is the game where starters play the most. Te’o started against Seattle and is expected to start the season opener, Sept. 9 against Houston.

    I'll take a sprain over a torn ACL.
