  Chargers | Melvin Ingram wants to play TE    Sun Jun 17, 10:49 PM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Melvin Ingram said he has been lobbying to see some snaps at tight end.

Footballguys view: Ingram is moving to DE this year in Gus Bradley's new defense. He's got enough on his plate just getting after quarterbacks and being a defensive superstar for the Chargers. Ingram has supreme confidence and is one helluva athlete...and the Chargers could use TE help after losing Hunter Henry (knee) for the season. Starting TE Virgil Green has been inconsistent and generally unimpressive for most of his career, and reports out of Chargers camp indicate he's doing nothing to change that perception. It's fun to think of Ingram on offense (and the accompanying MUT card on Madden), but at the end of the day this doesn't seem too likely to happen.

  Chargers | LAC duo piling up the sacks    Tue Oct 17, 11:45 PM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Melvin Ingram (7.5) and DE Joey Bosa (5.5) are the NFL's top pass rushing duo with a league-high 13 sacks between them and are the only pair of teammates ranked in the top 10 in the league.

Footballguys view: The Chargers defense has had to work through some injuries at the other levels of the defense (linebacker, secondary) but so long as they've got this duo rushing the passer they've got a shot each week. It's fun to watch Ingram and Bosa on a weekly basis, but it's a nightmare for opposing offensive coordinators to scheme around.

  Chargers | Melvin Ingram second in sacks    Wed Sep 27, 10:52 AM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Melvin Ingram is second in the league with 5.5 sacks through three games.

Footballguys view: Ingram is a relentless pass rusher who opponents have to game plan against. He was able to get Chiefs QB Alex Smith sacked three times on Sunday, and Ingram will continue to be one of the most disruptive players in the NFL. "It's good to see a guy go out and work hard every day, and then you see those results on the football field. Because that's the way he practiced." Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said.

  Chargers | Melvin Ingram signs four-year deal    Sun Jun 11, 05:38 PM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Melvin Ingram signed a new four-year contract Sunday, June 11, worth $66 million, according to a source. The deal includes $42 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: The two sides had up to July 15th to make a new deal happen, and they got this done a month before the deadline for franchise-tagged players. Ingram is going to continue to combine with Joey Bosa to provide the Chargers with great rushers on the edge. He'll move from outside linebacker to "Leo" rusher in Gus Bradley's new 4-3 defense in 2017.

  Chargers | Franchise tag for Melvin Ingram     Mon Feb 27, 08:26 PM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Melvin Ingram received the franchise tag Monday, Feb. 27.

Footballguys view: It's a non-exclusive tag, so other teams can negotiate with Ingram. He's got 18.5 sacks over the last two years and he's a key piece of what could be a dangerous Chargers defense in 2017.

  Chargers | Franchise tag coming for Melvin Ingram?    Mon Feb 27, 02:16 PM

San Diego Chargers impending free-agent LB Melvin Ingram is expected to receive the franchise tag before the franchise tag deadline Wednesday, March 1.

Footballguys view: With 18.5 sacks over the last two years, Ingram had to be locked down by the Chargers. He's still yet to play his best football, and the Chargers are wise to tag this up-and-coming pass rusher.

  Chargers | Melvin Ingram back at practice    Wed Nov 20, 05:36 PM

San Diego Chargers LB Melvin Ingram (knee) was back at practice with teammates Wednesday, Nov. 20, going through individual drills for the first time this season after rehabbing from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He remains on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Ingram feels like he could play in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs but will leave it up to the coaching staff. 'He's got a ways to go,' head coach Mike McCoy said. 'And I think he'll tell you the same thing -- whether it's conditioning level, or just the techniques and doing certain things and playing ball again. When you're out of it for that long, you knock some of the rust off on a daily basis.'

  Chargers | Melvin Ingram to start on PUP list    Mon Aug 26, 03:27 PM

San Diego Chargers LB Melvin Ingram (knee) will begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Like all players placed on the PUP list Ingram will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. After that time has expired the team has three weeks to decide whether or not to activate Ingram or place him on Injured Reserve. Without Ingram on the field the Chargers pass rush will be weak. Look for veteran Dwight Freeney to be counted on more than originally thought.

  Chargers | Two land on PUP    Wed Jul 24, 08:07 PM

The San Diego Chargers placed LB Melvin Ingram (knee) and SS Brandon Taylor (knee) on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list Wednesday, July 24. Ingram suffered his torn anterior cruciate ligament in May, and likely will begin the regular season on PUP, making him ineligible to return for at least the first six weeks. Taylor tore his ACL in December, and had surgery in January. He has a chance to return to practice during training camp, and potentially see action in the preseason.
