    San Diego Chargers inside linebacker Manti Te'o gestured during the first quarter of a preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday in San Diego.

Linebacker Manti Te’o will miss the San Diego Chargers’ season opener on Monday Night Football, the team said Saturday.

Te’o has been sidelined since early August with a foot injury sustained in the Chargers’ first preseason game.

The North Shore native and Punahou School graduate has worn a boot on his foot in recent weeks and has not practiced for several weeks.

There was no further announcement of his condition.
