Weddle out, Merriman in for Chargers in Dallas

BY foxsports • December 17, 2009

San Diego Chargers free safety Eric Weddle is out of the lineup for the second straight game because of a sprained knee.

While Weddle was inactive for Sunday's game at Dallas, linebacker Shawne Merriman was in the lineup despite having been bothered by a foot injury that has limited him for the past two weeks. Steve Gregory replaced Weddle in the lineup.

Tight end Martellus Bennett was out for the Cowboys after experiencing concussion-like symptoms since last week's game at the New York Giants.

Cowboys safety Ken Hamlin missed his fourth straight game with a high right ankle sprain. Alan Ball took over as the starting free safety.
