SAN DIEGO (AP) - Manti Te'o attended the San Diego Chargers' practice without a walking boot on Monday, the first time that has been the case since he was hurt in a preseason game on Aug. 8.
The rookie linebacker from Laie, Oahu, has yet to return to practice. He said he is "already itching to get back on the field."
San Diego coach Mike McCoy would not divulge specifics on Te'o's possible return to practice.
Te'o is not expected to play Saturday when the Chargers visit the Arizona Cardinals.
