Manti_Te'o_2013 [1]Manti Te’o practiced Wednesday for the first time since injuring his right foot in August.

The San Diego Chargers’ second-round pick out of Notre Dame wasn’t all the way back but his return represented progress.

“It’s been a long time and it’s definitely been a learning process,” said Te’o, who was injured Aug. 8. “But I’m glad I’m at the stage where I am right now and we’re going to get better every day.”

Chargers rookie Manti Te’o returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since injuring his foot in August.
Te’o hoped to work on Thursday as he tries to compensate for his time off.

“He has been in every meeting, been at every practice, been at every walk-through, been on the road with us,” coach Mike McCoy said. “He hasn’t missed anything besides practice time. It’s just a matter of how quickly he gets back into football shape and gets ready to go.”
