Shawne Merriman was excited about joining the Buffalo Bills because it offered him an opportunity to show that he's healthy and capable of producing at a new-contract-worthy, Pro Bowl-level.
That honeymoon's been canceled already though, because, according to our Bills Rapid Reporter Mark Ludwiczak, Merriman suffered an injury in his first practice as a Bill.
Ludwiczak reports that Lights Out "left the field with an apparent injury to his lower right leg after about 15 minutes."
So, yeah, that's kind of awkward, especially since that's the same leg with which he had Achilles' issues earlier this year.
The severity of the injury isn't known yet, but if it's anything serious, it could be the kind of thing that costs Merriman a chunk of change going forward.
