Chargers' Te'o out at least a week with foot injury

San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te'o has a sprained left foot.

He'll be out for at least a week.

"When he's ready, he'll be back out there,"Chargers coach Mike McCoy said.

Kavell Conner will start in his place.

Te'o sustained a sprained right foot during the first preseason game of his rookie season last year, missing the first three games of the season.

"It's not the same injury," McCoy said. "It's something completely different."

Te'o had 61 tackles last season with no big plays, no sacks, interceptions or forced fumbles.

He had surgery this offseason for a fractured right foot.
