Stars missing, but Turner's happy with minicamp

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers have completed a three-day minicamp, with a thumbs-up from coach Norv Turner.

Turner says the Chargers got a lot accomplished.

While Turner was upbeat, it was clear that the practices were conducted minus some key players as the Chargers try to bounce back from their embarrassing playoff loss to the New York Jets.

Linebacker Shawne Merriman, left tackle Marcus McNeill and wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd boycotted the sessions, upset over being tendered one-year contracts as restricted free agents.

While it might be a big deal to some, quarterback Philip Rivers points out that it's only May.
