San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te'o was seen wearing a walking boot on his right foot during Saturday's practice. It's unknown what kind of injury he has, or if he's even injured at all since nothing's been reported regarding that possibility.
Te'o played nine snaps in the Chargers' preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks, but didn't record any stats despite playing with the first team on the majority of downs. The rookie is penciled in for a starting linebacker job next to Donald Butler.
Head coach Mike McCoy did not report any injuries from Thursday's game, and has yet to comment on Te'o's status. The team has not stated whether or not he will miss any practice time on Saturday, but it seems likely that the walking boot is more of a precautionary measure.
Te'o was drafted in the second round after starting four years at Notre Dame. He recorded 113 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and seven interceptions last season while finishing second in Heisman voting.
