Shareece Wright DB SD 10 Months

Chargers 2011 third-round pick Shareece Wright handled first-team reps "throughout" OTA season opposite Derek Cox.

Cox is locked in at one corner, and Wright is the heavy favorite for the other job despite playing only 120 defensive snaps in 2012. It's one of the weaker positions on San Diego's roster. If the season began today, Wright and Cox would be the first-team outside cornerbacks with Johnny Patrick entering in sub-packages. Eric Weddle and Marcus Gilchrist would be the starting safeties.

The Chargers are "confident in" third-year CB Shareece Wright taking over the starting spot opposite Derek Cox.

The Bolts let both of last year's starters -- Quentin Jammer and Antoine Cason -- go in free agency, and only signed Cox. Wright battled a high-ankle sprain and a partial tear of an ankle ligament last season, limiting him to ten games. The former third-round pick has never started a game, and he's played just 124 defensive snaps in two seasons. San Diego is woefully thin at corner.

Chargers CB Shareece Wright (ankle) has resumed practicing.

Wright suffered a high-ankle sprain on San Diego's season-opening kickoff, but could be ready for snaps in the slot as early as Monday. Even if Wright isn't ready to face the Broncos, he'll undoubtedly be ready to roll following the Bolts' Week 7 bye.

Chargers CB Shareece Wright is out 4-6 weeks with a high ankle sprain and partial tear of an ankle ligament.

He apparently won't be placed on injured reserve just yet. A 2011 third-round pick out of USC, Wright was coming on with a big training camp before going down in Week 1. The Chargers will be thin behind Quentin Jammer, Antoine Cason, and Marcus Gilchrist going forward. They also cut CB Greg Gatson on Monday.

Chargers third-round CB Shareece Wright (ankle) was on crutches and in a boot Wednesday.

Wright, who won the starting nickelback job in camp, went down on the opening kickoff of his first NFL game. Marcus Gilchrist came on in his place. The good news for the Chargers is that Quentin Jammer is going to play through a broken hand this week.

Third-round CB Shareece Wright has missed the majority of training camp with an unspecified muscle strain in his leg.

Beat writer Kevin Acee suggests the missed reps are more of a concern than the actual injury. Wright could be headed toward the game-day inactive list to start the season.
