The San Diego Chargers announced that they’ve officially placed CB Jason Verrett on injured reserve and signed NT Ryan Carrethers to their practice squad.
- The Chargers also promoted CB Trevor Williams to their active roster.
The Chargers’ practice squad now consists of:
- WR Kevin Norwood
- LB Deon King
- OT Brett Boyko
- S Adrian McDonald
- WR Dom Williams
- NT Ryan Carrethers
- TE Jake McGee
- OLB Chris Landrum
- WR Isaiah Burse
- RB Andre Williams
Tests showed that Verrett suffered a partially torn ACL last weekend, so this was the expectation all along.
Verrett, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2014. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $7.889 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1,137,182 for the 2016 season.
In 2016, Verrett appeared in four games and recorded 13 tackles, one interception and three pass defenses for the Chargers.
