    SAN DIEGO (AP)—Chargers outside linebacker Shawne Merriman(notes) won’t play in Thursday night’s exhibition finale at San Francisco due to an Achilles’ tendon injury, and there’s no guarantee he’ll play in the season opener Sept. 13 at Kansas City.

    Merriman knows the team is better served with him fully healthy than playing with a hindrance, so he’s not going to just jump back into the lineup.

    Coach Norv Turner says the Chargers are taking it slow with Merriman. They don’t want the ailment to nag during the season, as foot and groin problems did in 2009.

    Also Tuesday, the Chargers released defensive lineman Ryon Bingham(notes) to make room on the roster after claiming cornerback Fred Bennett(notes) off waivers from the Houston Texans.
