As a follow-up to this morning's post, Shawne Merriman has passed his physical and has been waived by the Chargers. We'll find out tomorrow if any teams put a claim on him or if he will become an unrestricted free agent.
Buster Davis, who has finally started to perform up to his potential as the Chargers 2007 first-round draft pick, is again going to miss significant time due to injury.
Although he's been missing practice with "sore ribs" the past two weeks, I imagine it was the discovery of something more serious that convinced the team to move him to the Injured-Reserve list and lose him for the rest of the season.
UPDATE: The Chargers' Christopher Smith confirms it, saying "Davis was placed on IR because of a groin injury. He had missed practice time Weeks 6 & 7 bc of a rib injury that he played through."
