49ers Cornerback Out For The Season

The San Francisco 49ers have been hit pretty hard by the injury bug thus far in 2022, but nothing could have prepared them for the devastating injury that took place yesterday at practice, as Jason Verrett tore his achilles for the second time in his career, as he was right on the precipice of making his return to the NFL.

Unfortunately for Verrett, he's been prone to injury throughout his career, with just 1 game played in each of the 2018, 2019 and 2021 seasons, and now, it appears that if he wants to recover and get back to the NFL, it will come mid-way through the 2022 season at the earliest. 

The 49ers will now move on with their season without a key piece of their secondary, but the big story here is another major injury for Verrett, and we are all hoping that he can get back to the NFL, but at the very least, get healthy and stay strong through what must be an incredibly tough time.
