NFL - Scoop Du Jour

San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman(notes) returned to practice Wednesday after missing two games and most of two others due to a strained left calf and an injured right Achilles.

The Chargers have been trying to trade him for more than a year, and continues trying, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

He could be moved before the Oct. 19 trading deadline, but there has been little activity on that front, the paper reports.

If he's not dealt, it is a very real possibility that Merriman will be released before January, the Union-Tribune said.

Merriman, who showed up for camp two weeks late, is making $3.269 million this year.
