A blow to Chargers D-line: Tenny Palepoi suffers foot fracture in practice, source says. http://t.co/nrlrgRE0ix— Michael Gehlken (@UTgehlken) August 1, 2015
I saw it happen from the stands today. No, seriously, I even tweeted about it.

One thing I noticed, as he was helped over to the side with a limp, was Palepoi angrily throwing his helmet to the ground. That is a move typically reserved for major injuries, as these guys have a pretty good idea what non-serious injuries feel like.
A foot fracture likely knocks Palepoi out for the rest of Training Camp, and playing in 2.5 practices means he can't be put on the PUP list either. I doubt the team holds a roster spot open for him, so look for an announcement that he's been placed on IR sometime in the next few weeks.
