Manti Te'o out with concussion

DENVER -- San Diego Chargers middle linebacker Manti Te'o suffered a concussion in the first half of the Denver Broncos' 24-17 win in Sunday's AFC divisional round playoff game and did not return to the contest.

Te'o suffered the injury while attempting to make a tackle on Denver running back Knowshon Moreno late in the second quarter. Te'o was evaluated by San Diego's training staff on the field, but walked of on his own.

Te'o later went to the locker room for further evaluation, and did not return to the sideline. He finished with three tackles in the first half.

The rookie out of Notre Dame missed the first three games of the regular season with a sprained foot he suffered during exhibition play. Te'o finished the regular season with 49 tackles.

San Diego punter Mike Scifres suffered a back injury while trying to tackle Eric Decker on a long punt return in the second quarter, but returned to the game in the second half.
