Melvin Ingram: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Ingram has been sidelined with a hip/hamstring injury since Week 2, but he is eligible to be activated from IR-R this week, and should be able to play Sunday if he can make it through practice without issue.
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.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Much was expected from Ingram in his second year as a pro last season, but a torn ACL ruined his plans. He was able to come back from the injury well ahead of schedule and played in four games, but only managed to log eight tackles and one sack. As 2014 approaches, he looks primed to have a big year and should help the Chargers mostly pedestrian pass rush.
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.
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.
