    Merriman missed the exhibition opener last Saturday against Chicago because he ended his holdout just a day earlier.

    Inside linebacker Brandon Siler (ankle), offensive lineman Scott Mruczkowski (ankle), tight end Richie Brockel (shoulder) and left tackle Nick Richmond won't play, and it's unlikely offensive lineman Tyronne Green (ankle) will play.

    The Chargers practiced Friday morning at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. The team signed autographs and ran drills for an estimated 500 military members and their families.

    The highlight of the session came at the expense of the rookie class, which went through a pushup exercise while being yelled at by drill sergeants.
