Bills expecting Merriman's old form to show this year

Shawne Merriman's tenure with the Buffalo Bills thus far has been a lot like his last couple of years in San Diego - filled with injuries.

But the Buffalo News reports that Merriman says he has healed from Achilles surgery, saying he is "100 percent" and Coach Chan Gailey expects the Merriman who once was a dominant pass rusher for the Chargers to show up for the Bills this season.

"He works hard. He looks quick. He looks healthy," Gailey said. "That part of it has been refreshing for us, to see some what of I think we're going to see is the old Shawne Merriman this year."

Merriman will also be moving from his traditional 3-4 linebacker spot to a 4-3 end position in the Bills' scheme.
