Now 15 months removed from his ACL tear, Ingram looks more comfortable on the field and is expected to greatly improve the Chargers' pass rush this season, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ingram is expected to start Thursday against the Cowboys, but he will likely be in a heavy rotation with Dwight Freeney and rookie Jerry Attaochu at one outside linebacker spot this season. Still, Ingram has looked faster and more confident in training camp and could be set to have a big year as he matures in his third season in the league.
Ingram (torn ACL) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Chargers.com's Ricky Henne reports.

Ingram (knee) practiced on Wednesday for the first time since spring and felt great, although the Chargers are not planning to rush him back into game action, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ingram sprained his exactly ACL six months ago and says he is feeling great. When asked if he thought he could play this week, he responded that he probably could but that he would obviously leave that decision to the coaches and doctors. The Bolts will surely take their time and watch how he progresses over the next few weeks because they have until December 10 to decide whether or not activate him or place him on season-ending injured reserve. Ingram's return would be a boost for a unit that is having hard time closing out games and has been particularly sloppy with their tackling in recent weeks.
Ingram (knee) will return to a limited practice Wednesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

2014

2013

Ingram was set to have a break out season in 2013, but a torn ACL during an OTA session will most likely cost him the entire year.

2012

Many experts feel that the Chargers got a steal when Ingram fell to them in the late first round of the 2012 draft, and he is expected to immediately put a charge into San Diego's pass rush. He will play primarily at the outside linebacker spot, but early indications are that he will line up at a number of different positions throughout the season in an attempt to maximize his potential for getting after opposing quarterbacks.
