Verrett agreed to a one-year deal to remain in San Francisco on Monday, ESPN alum Josina Anderson reports.
Verrett would have been among the most coveted free agent cornerbacks had he been allowed to hit the market after recording 60 tackles and two interceptions over 13 appearances last season, but this deal will keep him in San Francisco for another year. The exact financial terms of the deal are yet to be disclosed at this point.
Verrett recorded 60 tackles (50 solo) with two interceptions across 13 games with San Francisco in 2020.
Verrett resurrected his career in a big way this year after appearing in just six contests over the last four injury-riddled seasons. The 49ers had a glaring need at cornerback opposite Richard Sherman, and the former shutdown corner was able to turn back the clock and fill that role. The 29-year-old will enter free agency as a desirable asset for the first time in a long while, but those in IDP formats are unlikely to share that same desire for a coverage corner whose production doesn't translate to big fantasy performances.
Verrett (illness) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice.
Verrett was a late scratch for this past Sunday's loss to the Cowboys due to an illness, but he has distanced himself from the issue. The 29-year-old cornerback should be ready to go for Saturday's game against the Cardinals. Verrett has impressed in coverage this season, and he could operate as the 49ers' top cornerback in Week 16 if Richard Sherman (calf) is held out.
Verrett (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
This news is certainly surprising, especially considering that Verrett was not listed on the injury report coming into the contest. It appears the TCU product is dealing with a non-COVID-19 related illness, but he's handled a starting role at cornerback this season, racking up 44 tackles (36 solo), six pass breakups and two interceptions. The good news for the 49ers is that Emmanuel Moseley (hamstring) and K'Waun Williams (ankle) will be available at cornerback for the contest.
Verrett (hand) was able to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Verrett's first-half return represents a major boon for a 49ers secondary that's without Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring), Richard Sherman (calf) and Emmanuel Moseley (concussion).
Verrett (hand) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Verrett has been playing a larger than expected role in San Francisco's injury-riddled cornerback corps, but the team will now need to dig even further into its depth. He's having a tough season on the injury front, having battled a hamstring injury earlier in the campaign.
Verrett will start at cornerback versus the Giants with Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) inactive, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Verrett has yet to play this season due to a hamstring injury, but he'll have an important role upon returning to the lineup. The 49ers are down their top two cornerbacks with Richard Sherman (hamstring) on IR as well, so Verrett will look to slow down Darius Slayton and Golden Tate on Sunday.
Verrett (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Verrett missed the first two games of the season due to a lingering hamstring injury, but he looks on track to return against the Giants on Sunday. The veteran cornerback will likely play a depth role in San Francisco's secondary.
Verrett (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Jets, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Verrett's absence will mark his second straight to kick off the season. He has been bothered by a lingering hamstring issue and will continue to take it slow in an attempt to avoid aggravating the issue further. His next chance to suit up will come in Week 3 against the Jets.
Verrett (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.
Verrett has played just one game (14 total snaps) since 2017, and his 2020 debut is on hold. Although Verrett's role was in question, this means Ahkello Witherspoon and K'Waun Williams should both be locked into a consistent snap count Sunday.
Verrett strained his hamstring in practice Thursday, Grant Cohn of SI.com reports.
It is reported to be a Grade 1 strain -- the lowest on the spectrum -- which hopefully means the veteran defensive back will not miss too much time. Verrett has battled through injuries the majority of his career, playing in just six of a possible 48 games over the last three seasons.
Verrett (knee) will compete for snaps at outside cornerback opposite Richard Sherman in training camp, Doug Williams of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Verrett, who was limited to just one appearance with the 49ers last season due to a knee injury, stands to compete with Emmanuel Moseley and Ahkello Witherspoon for starting snaps in training camp. Sherman is locked as San Francisco's top corner, while K'Waun Williams will operate as the primary option out of the slot.
Verrett (knee) has re-signed with San Francisco.
Verrett spent six seasons with the Chargers before joining the 49ers last offseason. He only appeared in one game before being placed on injured reserve Oct. 3. There has not been any news regarding his recovery, but the team's commitment to him for another season indicates he is positively progressing.
Verrett (knee) remains on injured reserve but hopes to return to the practice field by Week 14, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Verrett has been out since Week 3 but could return before season's end, provided the 28-year-old cornerback is able to make a full recovery. According to Maiocco, the 49ers hope to have Verrett back at practice in a few weeks, at which time the team will assess whether it's realistic to expect him to feature in a game this season.
The 49ers placed Verrett (knee) on injured reserve Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Verrett tweaked his left knee during Week 3's win over the Steelers, according to Barrows. The 2014 first-round pick is reportedly a candidate to return to the active roster in eight weeks, provided he makes a full recovery.
Verrett (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's contest against Cincinnati.
Verrett was battling an ankle injury earlier in the week, but his absence from Week 2 is reportedly not related to injury. The 2014 first-round pick was unable to play in Week 1, and in his stead, it will be Ahkello Witherspoon who gets the start at one of the cornerback positions.
Verrett (ankle) wasn't listed on the 49ers' injury report Wednesday.
Verrett didn't play in the season opener, but it appears he'll be full speed ahead going forward. The 2014 first-round pick has played in just 25 games in his five-year career, and he hasn't suited up since 2017 due to ACL and Achilles issues. It's been a long journey, but Verrett's expected to start at cornerback Sunday versus the Bengals.
Verrett (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's Week 1 tilt against the Buccaneers.
The oft-injured corner is still recovering from an ankle sprain suffered back in early August, so the 49ers will be cautious with their offseason addition. Whenever Verrett is able to take the field again, it will constitute his first regular-season action since Week 1 of the 2017 season.
Verrett (ankle) is considered questionable for Sunday's season opener against Tampa Bay, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Verrett managed to practice in a limited fashion each day this week. The 28-year-old sprained his ankle during practice in early August and was ruled out for the entire preseason. If Verrett can't suit up Sunday, Ahkello Witherspoon seems likeliest to start at corner opposite Richard Sherman.
Verrett (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Verrett sprained his ankle during practice in early August, and he was quickly ruled out for the entire preseason. That was an unfavorable sign for Verrett, who missed the entire 2018 season with a torn Achilles, but it's positive news that he's working in some fashion during Wednesday's practice. The 49ers will deploy Verrett as a starting corner back when he's ready, so they hope he can leave an unsavory injury history -- he's played just 25 games over five years -- in the past. Keep an eye on Verrett's practice status ahead of Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers.
