Merriman Injured - Out "At least a week"

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3149230

Star outside linebacker Shawne Merriman will miss San Diego's home game against Detroit because of a sprained ligament in his left knee that knocked him out of Sunday's game at Tennessee, which the Chargers won in overtime.

Quarterback Philip Rivers is in a little better shape, saying he expects to play against the Lions even though he, too, has a sprained left knee.

"It will be at least one game," Merriman said in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Monday. "I'll be back to dominating in no time."

Coach Norv Turner said Merriman's injury isn't season-ending.

"I'm not going to speculate, but it could be a couple of weeks," Turner said.

I know it's a little soon to look ahead to the Chargers game, BUT, since the Broncos need to win out, having Merriman out of the SD game couldn't hurt.
