Tucker, Hagan scratched

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
MIAMI -- Two significant scratches from this afternoon's game between the San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins.

The Chargers will play without linebacker Jyles Tucker, who has played fabulously in place of the injured Shawne Merriman. Tucker has a team-leading three sacks, three quarterback hits, four tackles for losses and 18 tackles.

The Dolphins deactivated receiver Derek Hagan. The third-year pro never has missed a game. But he hasn't done much this year. He has three catches for 51 yards.
