    Merriman returns to practice


    By Kevin Acee October 1, 2009, 2:01 p.m.


    Shawne Merriman is doing at least individual drills today, leaving open the possibility he could play Sunday against the Steelers.


    Of course, Merriman worked last week too, but couldn't go more than a handful of plays last Sunday due to a groin strain.


    Merriman did not appear to have the same explosiveness he usually does even in position drills.

    "Limited participation"? He's a punter! Exactly what did he miss? Thank god a groin injury didn't prevent him from watching gamefilm on the Steelers right?:lol:

    Maybe it was those last resort tackling drills or the proper parachute landing drills at the feet of the returner.

    Allowed to use his putter only, no irons or woods until he is better.

    Phuck it. If Merriman or LT is not close to 100% for this Sunday, keep them both out and rest them for 2 weeks for Denver at home after the bye. We can deal with the Steelers with who we got right now. Granted Norv makes the right calls......:icon_huh:

    Interestingly, San Diego worked out punter Ricky Schmitt. Regular punter Mike Scifres was limited both Wednesday and Thursday with a groin injury. The Chargers need Scifres against Pittsburgh. He is a major weapon in the battle for the field position.

    SciFi would be a huge loss, its time for him to man up.

    Alright, I'm starting to side with Buck on the notion that our training staff is simply horrible.

    Another pulled groin?

    Jeezus... hire more hot chicks to stretch these guys and pull their puds before practice if that's what it takes. But for gawd sakes... get those groins stretched!
