Manti Te’o Suffers Torn Achilles

Chargers linebacker¬†Manti Te’o has suffered a torn Achilles, as Ian Rapoport of¬†writes. Linebacker Manti Te’o went down with a non-contact injury on Sunday against the Colts and an MRI today confirmed the team’s worst fears. Te’o will be placed on season-ending IR.¬†Manti Te'o (vertical)

Te’o opened the season with a bang as he racked up ten tackles against the Chiefs. Things seemed to be pointing to a productive year for the 25-year-old, but his season has ended prematurely instead.

Te’o, the 38th overall pick in the 2013 draft, is no stanger to the injury bug. As a rookie in 2013, Te’o suffered a foot injury in the preseason which sidelined him for the first part of the regular season. In the following year, the linebacker missed six games due to a foot fracture. Last year, Te’o missed four games as the result of an ankle injury.

    Has he met with his doctor? Or just talked to him over the phone?

    I don’t watch the Chargers regularly but I never hear about this guy. I’m guessing he has not met expectations? If he has, why does no one ever mention him?

      Because he’s shunned because of the whole girlfriend situation, and he doesn’t really perform up to par so
