    San Diego Chargers rookie corner back is looking closer to being game-ready after shoulder surgery in the off season.

    Jason Verrett is ready for contact drills, wearing his regular-colored jersey Monday.

    Even with limited practice, he's made a good impression.

    “When you’re throwing it at him, he seems to always make it close” said Chargers QB Philip Rivers.

    Nothing jumps out at me that he’s given up that’s been easy.

    Rivers said that’s what a quarterback wants in a defensive back.

    “One that makes every catch contested and makes you have to be accurate with a football,” he said.

    The Bolts are prepearing to face the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday, Aug. 24 at 1 p.m. at Levi's Stadium.
