News: The Chargers play the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, and just like last year, Te'o is skipping the third preseason game with a sprained foot. Impact: This summer the injury is to his left foot. Last year, it was his right. That injury in his rookie year forced him to miss the first three regular-season games and the final three preseason games. Te'o ultimately started 13 games and two more in the playoffs. The consensus was that he improved as the season progressed and he got further away from his foot injury, which required an offseason surgery.(STATS, 6:34pm)

News: As expected, Te'o (foot) missed Monday's practice and will not be available for Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers, but the injury is not thought to be as severe as the one that cost him five games last season, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: This injury is completely unrelated to last year's, which occurred on the opposite foot, and Te'o thinks he has plenty of time to get healthy before the season opener. "Luckily it is the preseason," Te'o said. "Lucky we're early." While Te'o is out, the Chargers have a number of seasoned options to use in Kavell Conner, Reggie Walker and Andrew Gachkar.(RotoWire, )
