Jason Verrett headed to IR for second straight season


The Los Angeles Chargers can’t catch a break.

Starting cornerback Jason Verrett will be placed on season-ending injured reserve after a second opinion confirmed the need for another knee surgery, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday, per a source.

Verrett suffered a season-ending ACL injury in Week 4 of last season and was on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list at the start of training camp. He aggravated a knee injury during L.A.’s Week 1 loss to the Broncos and was inactive against the Dolphins in Week 2.

The Chargers picked up Verrett’s fifth-year option in the offseason, so the corner is still guaranteed $8.5 million next year, per Spotrac. 

And so it goes for the snakebit Bolts, who will likely move rookie cornerback Desmond King into Verrett’s spot across from Casey Hayward permanently.
