NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Verrett was diagnosed with a torn labrum and is out at least two to three weeks, according to two sources informed of his prognosis. The rookie will miss this Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, and the team will revisit the injury after their Week 10 bye.
There is a chance that Verrett could end up on injured reserve list. As Rapoport points out, the injury is similar to Doug Martin's in 2013, which cost the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' running back the rest of his season. The Chargers hope that isn't the case with their rookie corner as they prepare for a playoff push.
Verrett saw a specialist on Tuesday who gave him the diagnosis and will look at surgical options after the season. In the meantime, the Chargers hope the inflammation goes down in the next two weeks. If the shoulder calms down and Verrett can deal with the pain, he could play through it. Until then, he'll try to strengthen and rehab it to see if he can function with the injury, per Rapoport.
