    Manti Te'o hopes he's given the boot to a walking boot he's worn on his sprained right foot since Aug. 9, the day after the San Diego Chargers' exhibition opener.

    The rookie linebacker was out of the boot Tuesday, although he hasn't been cleared to practice.

    ''It's a big step for me to take that boot off and see where it goes from there,'' Te'o said. ''It's a boost of confidence. Taking the boot off shows that it's getting better, so I'm really excited about it.''

    Te'o fared better than wide receiver Dan DePalma, fullback Chris Gronkowski and wide receiver Mike Willie. Those three were placed on injured reserve to reach the roster limit of 75.

    DePalma and Willie were hurt in Saturday night's exhibition victory against Arizona.
