SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers are keeping Manti Te’o off-limits to the media — for now.

The star linebacker was barred from speaking with reporters at the Chargers’ second open session of organized team activities.

That doesn’t mean Te’o isn’t out and about.

Maxim confirmed Monday that Te’o attended a party last week in Hollywood after the magazine included his fake girlfriend on its list of the world’s hottest women. Rookie coach Mike McCoy says he didn’t know Te’o went to the party.

Te’o was part of a girlfriend hoax that drew national headlines. He also had a poor performance in Notre Dame’s blowout loss to Alabama in the national championship game.
