Chargers corner Jason Verrett (ACL) to miss season

The Chargers' injury bug has bit another victim.

Cornerback Jason Verrett is expected to miss the rest of the season with a partially torn ACL, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported via a source informed of the situation.

Verrett told reporters, "My season is over with. ... I cried yesterday," per the San Diego Union-Tribune. The cover man added that he expects to undergo surgery.

He joins teammates Keenan Allen, Steve Johnson, Danny Woodhead and Manti Te'o as those who have suffered season-ending injuries for the Chargers in 2016.

Verrett had been a force on the outside, leading a resurgent San Diego secondary that is now the strength of the defense. In the first two weeks of the season, star wideouts Jeremy Maclin and Allen Robinson were held to a combined seven catches for 80 yards when their quarterbacks targeted them against the stud corner.

The Chargers, however, also received some good injury news. First-round defensive lineman Joey Bosa (hamstring) fully participated in Wednesday's practice. Coach Mike McCoy stated the "hope" is that Bosa will make his NFL debut this upcoming Sunday against the Raiders.
