Verner (hamstring), who participated in his first practice Sunday since the outset of training camp, hopes to see preseason action in the coming weeks, according to the Buccaneers' official site. "We're going to take it day by day, and every day they're going to re-evaluate me in the morning to see if I'm sore from the previous day," he said. "So tomorrow we'll look at what I did today and how I'm progressing and we're going to take it from there. There's no real time-table; we're always just gearing for that season opener but I'd definitely like to get back sooner."

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Verner will start at cornerback for the Titans.

2012

The emergence of Jason McCourty pushed Verner out of the IDP picture in 2011 for the most part, but the exit of Cortland Finnegan this offseason means Verner should regain his role as a starting cornerback in Tennessee. The job has turned out to be highly profitable for IDP purposes, as Tennessee starting cornerbacks have averaged 95 tackles per season the last two years. That includes a 101-tackle rookie season for Verner in 2010, one in which he actually started only 12 games. The arrival of fourth-round pick Coty Sensabaugh is somewhat of a concern, but Verner should hold him off.

2011

Verner was one of the league’s most promising rookies last year after his fourth-round selection out of UCLA. While he lacks standout athleticism, the instincts and ball skills that made him a top player for the Bruins allowed Verner to earn a starting role in his first year with the Titans. The result was 101 tackles (85 solo) with three interceptions and 11 pass deflections. The Titans figure to have a lackluster offense again in 2011, so Verner should get plenty of snaps as he attempts to duplicate his rookie-year production.

2010

Verner is getting opportunities in training camp to become a starting cornerback for 2010, but is likely to remain as a backup during his rookie season.
