San Diego Chargers rookie inside linebacker Manti Te’o will make his NFL debut Sunday in a home game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to multiple media reports.

Te’o injured his foot in the Chargers preseason opener in August and has not played since.

According to The Darren Smith Show on The Mighty 1090 Sports Radio, Te’o said he’s “ready to go.”

Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said Te'o fully participated in practice on Wednesday.
