SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chargers are facing another unintended hurdle.
Cornerback Jason Verrett told reporters Wednesday that he has a partially torn ligament (ACL) in his knee and will be out for the rest of the 2016 season.
Verrett met with a team doctor Wednesday to determine the severity of his injury, ESPN reported. Apparently, Verrett has been having issues with his knee for a couple of weeks and needed to get it evaluated.
Verrett was seen walking around practice Wednesday, but he was not participating.
The Bolts have already dealt with several season-ending injuries and they’ve only played four games. Wide receiver Keenan Allen, running back Danny Woodhead and linebacker Manti Te’o will not return to the playing field until the 2017 season.
The Chargers have a record of 1-3 and face Oakland Raiders Sunday.
