Verrett was by far the
Verrett finished with three tackles (two solo) in the loss to the Colts.
Verrett was scorched by Colts' wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, who finished the game with eight catches for 174 yards a touchdown. The 25-year-old did leave the contest with an undisclosed injury, but managed to come back back later in the game. Coach Mike McCoy suggested Verrett did get "a ding or two" but declined to elaborate on the extent of the injury.
Verrett (calf) did not practice Thursday but is still expected to play Sunday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
When asked if Verrett would play against the Jaguars, head coach Mike McCoy said, "Sunday at 1:25, he'll be out there", so it appears as if Verrett's calf injury isn't serious. Likely matched up against wide receiver Allen Robinson, the third-year pro should once again be in prime position to factor in IDP leagues.
Verrett (calf) was limited at practice Wednesday.
While Verrett's limited availability at practice was a bit of a surprise given the 25-year-old did play Sunday against the Chiefs, it appears as if the Chargers are just taking a precautionary approach with their star cornerback. His practice status should be worth monitoring in the coming days, but for now IDP owners should feel comfortable leaving Verrett in their starting lineup.
Verrett recorded solo two tackles, one interception and two pass deflections in the loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
With the Chargers sitting on a substantial lead early in the fourth quarter, Verrett seemingly iced the game, jumping in front of a pass intended for WR Jeremy Maclin to secure the interception near midfield. That lead would quickly diminish soon thereafter, as the Chiefs rallied for 17 points to force overtime. Verrett could be an intriguing option for IDP owners, as the third-year pro has taken on more of a leadership role with the defense and could see himself matched up against the opposition's best receiver on most gamedays.
