Chargers dump LB Merriman, Place Davis on IR

Today, the Chargers made the move that has been in the works for the last couple of weeks, waiving former Pro-Bowl linebacker Shawne Merriman.

He was given a “minor-injury designation” on October 13th, which said that the Chargers would release him once he was back to full health. After passing a physical today, the move was made official. He has had injury problems in the past several years after becoming a feared linebacker in the first few years of his career, and the Chargers have finally decided to move on without him.

Wide receiver Buster Davis was placed on IR after missing last Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans with a groin injury. It’s unfortunate for Davis considering 2010 was the first year he was starting to earn his designation as a first-round draft choice. He had accumulated 21 receptions for 259 yards in seven games.

Recently released offensive tackle Adam Terry was also re-signed now that a roster spot has been opened up for him.
