    SAN DIEGO (AP)-The San Diego Chargers likely will be missing some key defensive players when they visit the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

    Outside linebacker Shawne Merriman, end Luis Castillo and safety Eric Weddle aren't expected to play after missing Thursday's practice.

    Merriman has been bothered by a foot injury and hasn't practiced all week. It's a soft tissue ailment that has proved problematic. He would be replaced by rookie Larry English.

    Castillo hasn't played or practiced since hurting his ankle in the win over Denver on Nov. 22. Alfonso Boone is filling in for Castillo in the starting lineup.

    Weddle is expected to miss the next two games with a knee injury. In his absence, Paul Oliver and Steve Gregory will be part of the mix, depending on the package the Chargers are employing.
