Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett injured before camp opens

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett has incurred another injury even before training camp begins.

The Chargers confirm Verrett got hurt during a conditioning test Friday morning, one day before the first practice of camp. The team wouldn’t disclose the nature of Verrett’s latest injury.

Verrett missed 15 games last season and 12 games in 2016 due to knee injuries. He returned to full practices during the Chargers’ recent offseason workouts.

Verrett made the Pro Bowl in 2015, but has been unable to stay healthy since. Three of his four NFL seasons have ended early due to injuries.

Verrett had surgery to repair his ACL in 2016. He made it through just one game last season before needing another knee surgery.
