San Francisco 49ers WR Jalen Hurd (back) and CB Jason Verrett (knee) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 3. CB Dontae Johnson was also signed an undisclosed contract.

Footballguys view: Verrett is a starting quality corner but can't stay healthy. The team had high hopes for Hurd in a multi-faceted role but for now it is not to be. Richie James roster spot is more secure with the news today.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett goes to IR    Thu Aug 2, 12:46 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (Achilles') was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Aug. 2. TE Austin Roberts (knee) was also sent to IR. In corresponding moves, free-agents WR Marcus Peterson (IFL) and CB Channing Stribling (Colts) were signed.

Footballguys view: The football gods just don't like the Chargers, who are once again dealing with significant injuries before preseason has kicked off. Losing Verrett is a big blow to this defense and is going to put more pressure on the offense. That could mean some improved offensive numbers as Philip Rivers and company try to keep their team in the game.

  Chargers | Several Chargers not ready for camp    Fri Jul 27, 04:15 PM

Footballguys view: Lamp could be part of a revitalized interior line with fellow 2017 second-day pick Dan Feeney and free agent addition Mike Pouncey, but needs to get back to full speed. James' absence didn't any explanatory details, but with the loss of Jason Verrett, the defense needs him more than ever, so we'll be monitoring it closely.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett may have torn Achillies'    Fri Jul 27, 02:28 PM

Updating an earlier report, Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (Achillies') likely suffered a torn Achilles' during a conditioning test Friday, July 27, although he is still undergoing tests to confirm the seriousness of the injury.

Footballguys view: This is a terrible development for a player that will have played 25 games in the first five years of his career. Verrett is a legit CB1, but just can't stay healthy. The Chargers have Trevor Williams and Desmond King so it's not crippling for their secondary, but it makes the jump to the elite less likely. No team seems to have more bad injury luck than the Chargers.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett participates fully    Sun Jun 17, 10:49 AM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, June 13.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Chargers here. They have the makings of a suffocating defense on all three levels, but having Verrett back in action makes them even stronger. Verrett is a fantastic player who can annoy and frustrate opposing WRs often...but he's rarely been on the field over the last two years. He's played in just five games over that span.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett cleared     Sat Jun 9, 11:46 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) has returned to practice and was moving well in 7-on-7 drills, according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Verrett is a fantastic corner when healthy, but he's missed all but five games over the last two years. If he can get back to full strength and didn't lose some of his athleticism due to this knee injury, Verrett can be a key piece to a emboldened Chargers secondary in 2018 as a starter opposite Casey Hayward.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett not cleared yet    Sat May 26, 12:33 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) has not been cleared for full participation in practice at this point.

Footballguys view: Verrett could be a fine corner if he was ever healthy. He's only played in five games over the last two years, and the 2014 first-round pick has never appeared in a full 16-game season. The Chargers have an upgraded secondary but would further benefit from a healthy Verrett.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett should return for workouts    Mon Jan 15, 02:02 PM

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) is expected to be on the field at some point during offseason workouts, according to general manager Tom Telesco.

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Sept. 23. The team also signed practice squad LB Nick Dzubnar to their active roster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Verrett is a talented but oft-injured player, and this is a major blow to the Chargers secondary. They'll still have Casey Hayward as the no1 CB in that secondary, but second-year CB Trevor Williams (UDFA, 2016) will be lined up opposite of him. Expect opponents to go after Williams as much as possible.

Footballguys view: The loss of Verrett helps the case of Jay Cutler and the Miami offense. One of Kenny Stills, Devante Parker and Jarvis Landry will benefit if rookie Desmond King and Trevor Williams aren't up to the task of playing more snaps.

Los Angeles Chargers CB Jason Verrett likely will have his fifth-year option exercised this offseason.

Footballguys view: Verrett has yet to play a full 16-game season since the team selected him in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. He appeared in four games last year, and his season was cut short due to a knee injury that required surgery (left ACL). When healthy, Verrett has the ability to shut down some of the best receivers in the game.
