Description: Chargers linebacker Manti Te'o is probable for Monday's game against Indianapolis.

Description: Chargers second-round pick, linebacker Manti Te'o, was back at practice for the first time since getting injured in the preseason opener.
Insight: Te'o sprained his foot early in early August and will need some time before returning to the lineup, but the Chargers need all the defenders they can get after yielding 960 total yards over the first two games.

Description: San Diego rookie Manti Te'o sprained his foot during Thursday's preseason loss to the Seahawks. SOURCE: San Diego Union-Tribune
Insight: Te'o lasted only nine snaps before coming out of the game. He'll be sidelined for at least a week. If the 2012 Heisman Trophy finalist recovers quickly enough, he should be one of the Chargers' starting inside linebackers Week 1 against the Texans.

Description: The Chargers traded up to pick Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o with the 38th overall pick in the NFL Draft.
Insight: Te'o was a Heisman Trophy finalist last year at South Bend while leading the Irish to the BCS title game. Te'o fell to the second round because of a bizarre off the field incident he encountered back in January but he should still be a solid contributor at the professional level.
