San Diego Chargers’ linebacker Manti Te’o says he’s “pretty sure” he’ll be ready play week one versus the Houston Texans.

The rookie linebacker sprained his foot back in his first preseason game versus the Seattle Seahawks and hasn’t played or practiced since. Te’o is missing valuable playing time in preseason and he’ll be playing catchup when the season starts. As an inside linebacker, Te’o will be tasked with helping in coverage, but also stopping the Texans’ running back Arian Foster.
