    Chargers rookie CB Jason Verrett diagnosed with a torn labrum, source says. Plan is to revisit it after the bye. He wants to play through it

    Agreed. It takes a much longer time to recover from a torn labrum if wants to let it heal on its own!

    Just put them all on IR. Tank season. Get high draft pick. Draft another set of blue collar players. Seems we won't ever get a break with this injury bug this season. UGH!!!

    I actually played through a torn labrum myself also playing the CB position. His range of motion for that shoulder would be pretty limited but its definitely an injury you can play through at CB.

    He'll have surgery after the season...... just like Liuget did. If a D-lineman can play through it, I would expect a CB could. Not saying it won't affect him, because it surely will.

    Still, an injured Verrett is a much better option than a healthy Marshall. ;)

    Thing about a torn labrum is that you can absolutely play through it as when you warm up your shoulders properly, you do not actually feel the pain that much! It's just when the body cools down and specially when you are sleeping that it will hurt you like an SOB when moving around. He better not be cuddling up with his GF at nights on that torn side ;)

    Chargers CB Jason Verrett out indefinitely
    First-round pick needs surgery at some point, won't play Sunday
    By Michael Gehlken


    How this ends is Jason Verrett undergoing surgery.

    The state of his left shoulder demands that.

    How long that procedure can be deferred is the unknown as the Chargers enter the second half of their season.

    The first-round rookie cornerback played his senior year at TCU despite a torn right labrum. Toughness isn't the question with Verrett. He wants to contribute in similar fashion, but an unrelated left shoulder injury suffered this month that includes a labrum tear places question on to what extent he'll play this season. Out indefinitely, Verrett won't face the Dolphins on Sunday.

    San Diego has its bye the following week.

    The rest period allows for inflammation to settle down on an injury through which Verrett already has twice played. The Chargers will determine how to proceed with the core contributor next month. By not placing him on injured reserve, there is obvious hope he will return in 2014.

    He suffered the injury Oct. 12 when diving for a third-quarter Raiders incompletion. Upon exiting the game, he was examined and later returned. In the game's final minute, he sealed a win with his first career interception, it coming at O.co Coliseum, the stadium where his family had season tickets for years, against the team for which the Fairfield native grew up supporting.

    The injury's full extent became known later in the week after further examination.

    The Chargers' medical staff diagnosed it, sources said. Providing a second opinion, a specialist confirmed it.

    While not considered career threatening, the ailment casts uncertainty on how long Verrett can put off surgery. It is possible, even if he does return this year, that he'll be unable to finish the season.

    This is an obvious blow to the Chargers. Verrett has been among the top cornerbacks in the league in short order while totaling 19 tackles and the aforementioned pick. He surprisingly played last week with the injury, the team's secondary shorthanded with cornerbacks Brandon Flowers (concussion) and Steve Williams (groin) out against the Broncos. Verrett left the game in the second quarter and spent the second half on the sideline, left arm in a sling.

    It is believed that playing through the injury did not make it worse.

    In March, Verrett underwent surgery to his other shoulder following the pre-draft process.

    I dislocated my shoulder and tore my labrum 5 months ago. You can play through it. Hurts. Your range of motion is definitely not going to be there. Of course im in my 40's but I still cant raise my hand 100% straight up. Hopefully he doesn't do more damage to it.

    Word is that the rotator cuff also has a partial tear, so it might be a bit more severe than what you're talking about. I hope not though.

    Like the old trainer used to say, just shoot some cortisone into it, you are good for a couple more games with no problems...
