    The San Diego Chargers are going to play it smart with Pro Bowl linebacker Shawne Merriman as he comes back from a major knee surgery that kept him out of all but one game last season.

    Chargers.com reports that Merriman will be held out of the 14 offseason coaching sessions that will be held this month and next month. Merriman is still expected to be on the practice field for training camp and he is on target to play at the start of the regular season. Merriman worked out on his own during the team's minicamp May 1-3.

    It is no surprise that Merriman is going to be held out of the upcoming sessions. The team is completely confident he will be ready and the Chargers feel like they don't have to rush him on the field.

    After speaking to Merriman earlier this month, there is no doubt that Merriman will be ready to go when he gets the green light.

    I see no problem for the team holding him out. Plus, it will give top pick Larry English more repetitions. The team is hoping to use both Merriman and English on the field at the same time.

    Translated: "The team is hoping to crush opposing quarterbacks into dust on every snap of the ball"
