Chargers Pro Bowl cornerback Jason Verrett has a partially torn ACL, Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Wednesday.
Verrett told reporters that he’ll have surgery and miss the rest of the season.
Verrett finished last week’s game vs. the Saints, and McCoy said based on the game tape no one would have guessed that Verrett was injured.
The loss of Verrett is a big blow to a struggling team as he often covers the opponent’s No. 1 wide receiver. The 1-3 Chargers are at Oakland this week.
Verrett has one interception this season. He had three last season, when he went to his first Pro Bowl.
