Chargers rookie CB Verrett out indefinitely with torn labrum
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers will lose rookie cornerback Jason Verrett for at least one game and possibly longer with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
Verrett originally hurt his shoulder in a victory at Oakland on Oct. 12 – which he sealed with a last-minute interception – and aggravated it in a loss at Denver last Thursday night.
He’ll miss the game at Miami on Sunday, when the Chargers (5-3) will try to snap a two-game losing streak. The Chargers then have their bye.
Verrett played most of his senior season at TCU with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, which was surgically repaired in March.
The Chargers did regain a cornerback Thursday when Brandon Flowers was cleared to practice after missing the Denver game with a concussion.
