Shawne Merriman's torn PCL

UCrawford mentioned this in the comments of the Position Review: Linebackers post, but it was buried pretty deep so I wanted to start a new thread to get your opinions.

So Shawne Merriman has apparently torn his PCL - the report on NFLN is here.  From what I can gather from this article, it sounds like he is considering playing this season with it injured.  I don't know much about which CL is more critical, but I was under the impression that tearing any of them is a bad situation (ACL, MCL, PCL).  It sounds like Norv is on board with whatever as well... but is more concerned with him being available if they make the playoffs.

I can understand not wanting to lose a critical part of your defense (Norv) and not wanting to sit out an entire season (Shawne), but does it seem crazy to anybody else that he is hoping for a little patch-job so that he can play this season??  I'm trying to think of how I would feel if it were Derrick Johnson in a similar situation... of course the Chiefs aren't expected to be a contender like San Diego is, so the circumstances are different.  I'd probably tell Derrick to get healthy so he can come back next year when we will be more potent.

Anyway, what are your thoughts on this?  Is it madness?
