Los Angeles Chargers DE Melvin Ingram (knee) and CB Casey Hayward (groin) on Friday, Nov. 27, were ruled out of the team's Week 12 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Stefon Diggs matchup gets easier with Hayward out and the Chargers pass rush will rely mostly on Joey Bosa with Ingram sidelined. Josh Allen should have less resistance against this undermanned Chargers defense.

  Chargers | LA Chargers' Week 3 injury report    Fri Sep 25, 03:51 PM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Asmar Bilal (calf), DT Justin Jones (shoulder) and QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs, chest) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers. RB Justin Jackson (quad) and LB Nick Vigil (groin) did not practice all week and are listed as doubtful. DE Melvin Ingram (knee) and did not practice Friday, Sept. 25, and is also listed as doubtful. OG Trai Turner (groin) also did not practice Friday but is listed as questionable. S Rayshawn Jenkins (groin) was limited in practice all week and is also listed as questionable. OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) was upgraded to a full practice Friday and is listed as questionable as well. DE Joey Bosa (triceps), TE Hunter Henry (ankle) and DB Desmond King (back) practiced in full on Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Ingram is a standout and his absence will help Teddy Bridgewater although Uchenna Nwosu is an up and comer and could show the Chargers that there is a less of a dropoff than they think as Ingram enters free agency next year. Jones has also had a good start to the season and his loss will hurt the defensive line. Vigil being out will get Kyzir White on the field a lot for the second straight week.

  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.

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.
