|Jason Verrett has incurred another serious injury before training camp even begins for the Los Angeles Chargers.
The former Pro Bowl cornerback tore his Achilles tendon Friday morning during a conditioning test Mathew Barzal Jersey , one day before the first practice of camp. The Chargers will do more tests to determine the severity of the injury, but it's another heartbreaking blow to a promising player who has been unable to stay healthy in the NFL.
After making the Pro Bowl during the 2015 season, Verrett missed 12 games in 2016 and 15 games last season due to a persistent knee injury. He returned to full practices during the Chargers' recent offseason workouts, and he was thrilled for the opportunity to get back to the game.
Verrett has been unable to stay healthy since his Pro Bowl season. Three of his four NFL seasons have ended early due to injuries, and he has missed 39 of 64 possible regular-season games in his career since the Chargers drafted him in the first round in 2014.
Verrett had surgery to repair his ACL in 2016. He made it through just one game last season before needing another knee surgery when the pain proved too stiff.
Injuries have dogged the Northern California native since his college career at TCU, where he famously played his final season with a torn labrum in his shoulder. Verrett has remained upbeat and encouraged through much of his injury struggles Ryan Murray Jersey , and he expressed optimism after participating in full practices last month at minicamp.
"I dealt with so much adversity getting here, and then the fact that I dealt with a lot of injuries, it's kept me up to date," Verrett said last month. "Whenever other people are going through injuries, I feel like I know so much. Tell them, 'Hey Mike Green Jersey , work on this,' or 'Work on that.' I just feel it's something the man above put on my plate so I'm able to be a gift for somebody else."
The Chargers begin camp Saturday morning at Jack Hammett Sports Complex in Costa Mesa, California.
When the topic of conversation around the Giants shifted to wide receivers this offseason, it usually focused on Odell Beckham.
Whether it was his health, his contract or his presence at workouts, Beckham has been talked about a lot. He isn’t the only wideout on the roster Youth Chris Wagner Jersey , though, and quarterback Eli Manning spent a little time talking up one of the other wideouts on Tuesday.
Like Beckham and former Giant Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard dealt with injuries last year and missed five games on his way to catching 59 passes for 731 yards and two touchdowns. Manning said he feels that Shepard is “primed for a big year” in 2018 after a successful offseason of work.
“I thought Sterling had a great camp during the spring,” Manning said, via Matt Lombardo of NJ.com. “He’s understanding the coverages, understanding the route combinations Oscar Dansk Jersey , he understands zone and man, and how to make little moves to get open against different techniques.”
Assuming rookie running back Saquon Barkley is as good as advertised and the Giants have a healthy Beckham and tight end Evan Engram, Shepard should find himself with some advantageous matchups once the regular season rolls around. If he and Manning make the most of them, the prospects for an offensive rebound will be strong in Jersey.
