The Chargers have dealt with their share of season-ending injuries already this year with wide receiver Keenan Allen, running back Danny Woodhead and linebacker Manti Te’o all lost until 2017.
Allen and Woodhead both suffered torn ACLs and now another member of the team is reportedly worried that he may have a torn ligament in his knee as well. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that cornerback Jason Verrett fears that’s the case.
Verrett has not missed any time this season, but has been dealing with a knee issue for the last couple of weeks. He’s reportedly going to meet with doctors for an evaluation on Wednesday to determine whether there is a tear anywhere in the knee and if Verrett will be able to continue playing in the coming weeks.
The Chargers dealt with a slew of injuries on their way to a 4-12 record last year. Should Verrett join those other players on the shelf for any extended period of time, the chances of avoiding another dismal record will take a hit.
