Bosa has 23 career sacks in two seasons since being drafted third overall in the 2016 draft, including an NFL-record 19 sacks in his first 20 games.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera may have figured out the only way to avoid injuries to key players in training camp.

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett has incurred another injury even before training camp begins.
The Chargers confirm Verrett got hurt during a conditioning test Friday morning, one day before the first practice of camp. The team wouldn't disclose the nature of Verrett's latest injury.
Verrett missed 15 games last season and 12 games in 2016 due to knee injuries. He returned to full practices during the Chargers' recent offseason workouts.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Jason Verrett's staggering accumulation of injuries over the past several years could have shaken anyone's resolve to stick with football.
Instead, the Chargers' once-dominant cornerback is determined to get his game right back to where it was two seasons ago.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward has left the team to be with his family after his brother's death in a car accident.

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett will undergo season-ending knee surgery for the second consecutive year.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said Tuesday that his first-round pick is making progress.
Williams has already been ruled out of participating in practice during training camp, but he ran on the field Monday and again Tuesday, Lynn said. The Chargers are following a plan for rehabilitation in hopes of getting Williams on the field during the preseason.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Chargers nose tackle Brandon Mebane will miss the rest of the season with a torn biceps.
Mebane was hurt in Sunday's 31-24 home loss to the Miami Dolphins, which dropped San Diego to 4-6.
He joins a growing list of Chargers lost for the season, including wide receivers Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson, running back Danny Woodhead, linebacker Manti Te'o and cornerback Jason Verrett.
Mebane signed as a free agent in the offseason after spending the previous nine years with Seattle.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers have lost cornerback Jason Verrett to a season-ending knee injury even as it appears that rookie defensive end Joey Bosa is finally ready to make his NFL debut.
Verrett confirmed Wednesday that he has a torn ACL in his left knee that will require surgery.
"My season is done with," he said.
Verrett, who was a Pro Bowler last year in his second NFL season, said he felt pain the past three games and had an MRI on Monday that revealed the injury.
