Gehlken reports that njured his knee following an accidental collision with safety Jahleel Addae in the second quarter against the Jaguars. Early indications are that Shareece Wright’s ACL was not injured as well and appears intact.
Shareece Wright has been the San Diego Chargers starting left cornerback the past two seasons and has been a key contributor on the Chargers defense this season. Shareece Wright has been one of the Chargers top tacklers this season and had five solid open field tackles against the Jaguars today before he was injured.
Versatile defensive-back Richard Marshall filled in for Shareece Wright.
The Chargers drafted Shareece Wright in the 3rd round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of the University of Southern California (USC).
Hopefully for the Chargers it isn’t an MCL sprain, as they cannot afford another injury to their battered defense. The Chargers have already lost starting inside-linebacker Manti Te’o for several weeks with a fractured foot and outside-linebacker Melvin Ingram is on injured reserve with a designation to return with a hip injury and can’t return till week 11.
1st-Round pick Jason Verrett was out today with a hamstring injury that he suffered at the end of last weeks game against the Buffalo Bills.
With Shareece Wright possibly out expect Jason Verrett to take over at left cornerback when he is healthy. Expect Steve Williams or Richard Marshall to start at left cornerback for now until Verrett is deemed healthy to start.
