Merriman Misses First Practice; English Takes His Spot

Kevin Acee of the Tribune Review reports that Shawne Merriman took off practice after he was out their for eight straight practices, including two two-a-days. “We have a schedule for Shawne,” Norv Turner said. “This is planned out.”

Turner said that the plan is set up for looking to maximize Merriman’s down time as he comes back from major knee surgery less than 11 months ago. He practiced Monday afternoon and will work in the Chargers’ only practice Tuesday. First-round pick Larry English took Merriman’s morning reps with the first team.

“I think that’s going to help get me ready,” English said.
