Chargers linebacker Te'o 'frustrated and devastated' with 3rd foot injury in 13 months

Chargers linebacker Manti Te'o says he's "frustrated and devastated" with a third foot injury in 13 months.

Te'o sustained a fractured right foot in Sunday's 22-10 victory at Buffalo. Te'o and the team are declining to reveal much information about it, but club spokesman Bill Johnston says it's a different injury than the one Te'o suffered in the first exhibition game of his rookie season in 2013. Te'o missed the first three games of 2013 and had surgery in the offseason.

He sprained his left foot during training camp.

Asked if it's a chronic problem, Te'o said: "I don't know, bro. I don't know."

Neither Te'o nor coach Mike McCoy would say if the player will need surgery.
