Chargers LB Manti Te'o out with a concussion

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 09:37 a.m. HST, Jan 13, 2014

DENVER >> San Diego linebacker Manti Te'o suffered a concussion late in the first half and didn't return to today's AFC divisional playoff game against the Denver Broncos.

Punter Mike Scifres was also shaken up late in the first half. He has a back injury and his return is questionable.

Te'o was hurt trying to tackle running back Knowshon Moreno near the goal line. The rookie linebacker was helped to the sideline and then headed into the locker room for evaluation.

Scifres was banged up trying to make a tackle on Eric Decker's long punt return. Scifres stayed down for several minutes before being helped to the bench.

The Chargers lost to Peyton Manning and the Broncos 24 to 17.

The Broncos (14-3) controlled the game for 3 1/2 quarters before Philip Rivers capitalized on an injury to cornerback Chris Harris Jr. to stage a comeback reminiscent of Baltimore's shocking win at Denver exactly a year earlier.

This time, however, Manning rescued the Broncos from the brink of another crushing collapse and sent them into the title game for the first time in eight seasons.

They'll host the New England Patriots (13-4) on Sunday. Get ready for Brady vs. Manning once more.

The NFL playoffs are not important to HSA, I guess. Virtually no coverage at all. Let us see what happens when The Super Bowl occurs on Feb 2, 2014. You guys will not cover that? Maybe u guys will not cover The Pro Bowl either.

I just thumbed through a print copy of your newspaper and this web edition differs quite a bit from the print edition. Many of the "back in the day" people like me prefer to hold a paper newspaper and read it (rather scan it) from top to bottom and side to side. For example, Ferd's Words regarding the HIC is presented much more "neatly" in the print edition, while the web edition does no justice to Ferd's composition. Good work, you guys.

salsa, this is the NFL playoffs. Also, if you have no concern for our local NFL players, don't read this article! Find something newsworthy that has your name in it. Look hard and long.
