    The Chargers received better news than expected when tests revealed linebacker Shaun Phillips' calf strain might not be as severe as initially suspected.

    Phillips' expected recovery time of four weeks could take half as long.

    “It does not appear to be as bad as we thought it might be,” head coach Marty Schottenheimer said.

    If that is the case, the Chargers might never be without both of their starting outside linebackers at the same time.
    Shawne Merriman's appeal hearing to contest his testing positive for a banned substance is scheduled for Nov. 7, which means he is eligible to play in at least the next two games.

    The Chargers are already without linebacker Steve Foley for the season due to gunshot wounds and defensive end Igor Olshansky for at least another two weeks following knee surgery.

    I hope he comes back strong, because we really need him more now than ever. The other guy has stepped up this season, keep it rolling.
