Te'o returns to practice for Chargers

The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Manti Te'o practiced Wednesday for the first time since injuring his right foot in August.

The San Diego Chargers' second-round pick out of Notre Dame wasn't all the way back but his return represented progress.

Te'o hoped to work on Thursday as he tries to compensate for his time off.

Coach Mike McCoy said Te'o did have ''a little rust'' and declined to say whether Te'o would be activated for Sunday's game at Tennessee.
