    <blockquote><img align="left" alt="Shawne Merriman" title="Shawne Merriman" src="http://api.ning.com/files/801766?size=medium" /> SAN DIEGO – Linebacker Shawne Merriman skipped the Chargers practice on Friday to rest his sore left Achilles' tendon.

    "He has had tendinitis in it for some time and it just sort of jumped out and snagged him," coach Marty Schottenheimer said Merriman, who was pulled out of Thursday's workout. "So we held him out today as a preventive measure. We'll be careful with him."

    Merriman, the NFL's defensive rookie of the year in 2005, is confident he'll play Sunday night against the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers.</blockquote>
