Ladainian Tomlinson practiced today without soreness or other complications, and Norv Turner expects he will play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
"LT looked good," Turner said. "... We're making the kind of progress we'd hoped for. Based on what I've seen, I think there's a good chance (he plays)."
Tomlinson sprained his ankle in the first quarter of the season opener and has not played in the past two games. He returned to practice on Wednesday.
Shawne Merriman, meanwhile, was limited in practice. He will most likely be a gametime decision, as he was against Miami last week. Merriman's strained groin allowed him to only play a handful of snaps against the Dolphins.
