Former San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman reportedly had to be taken to the emergency room for an apparent overdose, per Andrew Blankstein of the Los Angeles Times.
Merriman, who announced his retirement from the NFL earlier this year, had a "medical emergency" that apparently came from a mix of alcohol and drugs.
At least from his own Twitter account, Merriman has been active since the report of his ER visit. So he apparently is OK.
