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 James Neal 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 Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey , 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, 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 Ryan Murray Jersey , I feel like I know so much. Tell them, `Hey, 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.




The Toronto Maple Leafs may have the second most Stanley Cups (13) Youth Le'Veon Bell Jersey , but it doesn't mean they haven't been the NHL's laughingstock for much of the past 50 years. This team last won the Stanley Cup in 1967 during the Original Six era. While they have had a few seasons they could feel good about since then, they've suffered a lot more headaches than joy. The聽Maple Leafs haven't reached the Stanley Cup Final since, and they've been prone to plenty of savage jokes and memes from the rest of the hockey world.

Many say that folks in Toronto believe they're "the centre of the universe". Couple that with聽how often the media talks about the Leafs like they're the golden franchise, and you can easily see why it's caused haters to rejoice in the wonderful world of memes. Though things are looking up for the Maple Leafs (thanks to drafting Auston Matthews while hiring Brendan Shanahan, Lou Lamoriello and Mike Babcock) Youth Jaden Schwartz Jersey , we won't soon forget the frustrating years the Maple Leafs had to endure in the late 2000s and most of the 2010s. From missing the playoffs to signing or trading for terrible players, there is no shortage of material when it comes to making fun of this team.

Here is a look at 15 priceless memes that show the failures of this team over the years.
