    SAN DIEGO (AP)—Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman was fined $7,500 for a hit on Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme in his only game this season.

    Merriman was fined for unnecessarily striking Delhomme below the knees in a 26-24 Panthers win on Sept. 7, league spokesman Corry Rush said Monday.

    Merriman announced two days after that game that he would have surgery on two torn ligaments in his left knee. Surgery was scheduled for Monday. The Chargers said they had no information about the surgery and Merriman’s agent didn’t return a phone call seeking comment.

    Merriman, a three-time Pro Bowler, had two tackles and no sacks in the Panthers game.
