It's not serious:

Merriman's injury no sweat: Don't get panicky about the Chargers adding linebacker Shawne Merriman on the injury report as questionable with an Achilles problem. It's a minor problem. Merriman was joking around after practice. The Achilles problem is something that flares up every now and then and dates back to last year. He is expected to play the Sunday night game against the Steelers.

I was just trying to point out that sometimes those reports aren't always what they seem.
Sorry dude, Krause gets me frustrated. I used to imagine 2 TE sets with him and Gates. But the guy can't stay healthy for whatever reason...

Shawne, do some strectches. We need you man.
I dont want him to rush back though, it could make it a LOT worse. If he can just play this sunday at 90% we might sit him against San Fran.
