In what has now become a weekly occurrence, the San Diego Chargers have lost another starter to a season-ending injury.
After playing all four quarters during Sunday's loss to the Saints, Verrett didn't mention anything about an injury until he showed up at practice on Tuesday with some soreness in his knee, according to Chargers coach Mike McCoy.
Verrett then underwent a test on his knee, which revealed the partially torn ACL.
"The feeling I had in my knee, I knew something wasn't right but I have the mindset of being out there," Verrett said, via the Chargers' official website. "Then getting the results, it was crushing. It was tough. But I knew something wasn't right."
Although Verrett dealt with injuries during his rookie year in 2014, the former first-round pick had managed to stay relatively healthy over the past year and a half. The 2015 Pro Bowler only missed two games last season, and had played in all four of the Chargers games this season.
Verrett's injury means that the Chargers probably have the most talented injured reserve list in the NFL.
The corner's injury marks the fourth time in four weeks that the Chargers have lost a key player.
In Week 1, the team lost wide receiver Keenan Allen for the season after he tore his ACL. One week later, the Chargers lost Danny Woodhead for the season after the running back also tore his ACL against the Jaguars.
