SAN DIEGO (AP) -Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman has decided to play this season rather than have surgery on two torn ligaments in his left knee.
Merriman informed the team of his decision this morning.
The star outside linebacker returned from Miami on Tuesday after seeking yet another opinion on his knee.
He said last week he has two torn ligaments in his left knee and has been told by doctors that he could suffer a possible career-ending injury if he attempts to play without having surgery.
