San Diego Chargers coach Mike McCoy said on the team's website that rookie linebacker Manti Te'o will miss a week of practice because of a foot sprain.
Te'o showed up to practice Saturday wearing a walking boot.
McCoy did not specify how Te'o was injured. Presumably, the injury occurred during Friday's 31-10 preseason loss to the visiting Seattle Seahawks.
Te'o, a second-round draft choice out of Notre Dame, started at inside linebacker but did not record a tackle in two series.
