Verrett is a key player for the defense and we would love to have him on the field. I love his toughness and his willingness to play through the pain. Not sure if it is the best idea for him to play through it, but if he is able to handle the pain and still be productive on the field, then I will take him out there. It sure is better than watching what Richard Marshall was doing out there.
Verrett had surgery on the other shoulder in the offseason and may have to go under the knife for this injury as well. He may look to get it done after the season though.
Either way, Verrett is going to try and play through the pain. I will watch in pain every time he dives for a ball and lands on that shoulder. I will also agonize every time that he goes to make a tackle. It has to affect his play. I wouldn’t want to put that shoulder out to hit some people or to dive for some balls. Sounds painful as heck!
