    <blockquote>By Michael S. Schmidt

    <img align="left" title="The Chargers' Shawne Merriman, the 2005 defensive rookie of the year, has reportedly violated the N.F.L.'s banned-substance policy." alt="The Chargers' Shawne Merriman, the 2005 defensive rookie of the year, has reportedly violated the N.F.L.'s banned-substance policy." src="http://graphics4.nytimes.com/images/2006/10/27/sports/27merriman.1.190.jpg" />The public nature of San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman's pending case involving a banned substance concerns officials with the National Football League and the players union.

    Because Merriman's positive drug test was leaked to the public before his appeal was resolved, it has created an awkward situation in which fans will continue to watch a top young player who has been linked to the use of a steroid. Merriman's appeal is scheduled to be heard Nov. 7 in New York.</blockquote>
