Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Taken off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (knee) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

Ingram's return is a significant one considering the Chargers' alarming inability to stop the run as of late. Justin Jones (shoulder), who was also activated off injured reserve Saturday, should help against the run, but Ingram's presence is surely a positive sign for running mate and oft-injured pass rusher Joey Bosa as well.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Labeled game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn said Friday that Ingram (knee) is a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

The Chargers will reportedly decide Saturday whether to place Ingram on the 53-man roster, a necessary prelude to him returning Sunday. The veteran defensive end hasn't played since Week 2 due to his lingering knee injury, and he'll be on a snap count even if he does manage to get the green light against Jacksonville.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Will be on snap count if he plays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn is hopeful that Ingram (knee) will play Sunday against the Jaguars but added that Ingram will be on a snap count if he plays, Gilbert Manzano of the Orange County Register reports.

Ingram will need to be removed from IR before he can suit up, though his return to practice Monday paved the way for Ingram to come off IR if he impresses in practice this week. Even on a limited snap count, Ingram is capable of being a major difference-maker, as he recorded at least seven sacks in each of the previous five seasons.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Set to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Ingram spent the requisite time on injured reserve and is eligible to return Sunday versus the Jaguars. It looks like he has a good chance to suit up as long as the practice week goes as planned, so it's worth monitoring his progress starting Wednesday. If he's good to go, Ingram will bring a fierce pass rush against a vulnerable Jaguars offensive line that has allowed Gardner Minshew to get sacked 17 times through six contests.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Could return after IR minimum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn said he hopes Ingram (knee) will be ready to return after spending the three-week minimum on injured reserve, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

The 31-year-old was placed on injured reserve Saturday with what's been described as "knee soreness," and he remains without an official timeline for his return. Ingram will at least be unavailable until the Oct. 18 matchup with the Jets.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

The veteran defensive end was listed as doubtful heading into Sunday's contest against the Panthers, so it's a bit surprising to see the Chargers make the leap straight to injured reserve. Ingram will now miss a minimum of three weeks as he attempts to rehab "knee soreness." The team's 2019 first-round pick, Jerry Tillery could see a massive jump in snaps with nominal starting defensive tackle Justin Jones also placed on IR with a shoulder injury.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Doubtful with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Per coach Anthony Lynn, Ingram's battling knee soreness that worsened from Thursday to Friday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Ingram's late addition to the injury report represents a major blow to a Chargers defense that has become a popular Week 3 streaming option against a Panthers team that will be without star running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle). The skilled pass rusher is still looking for his first sack of 2020 after recording at least seven sacks in each of the previous five seasons. Ingram didn't practice Friday after logging two full sessions to start the week.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Snares pick in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram recorded two solo tackles and an interception in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Somewhat shockingly, Sunday's interception means the defensive end has now picked off a pass in each of the last three seasons. Taking advantage of rookie Joe Burrow in his first career start, Ingram played coy on a screen pass, bursting in front of the dump off throw for an interception that completely changed the momentum of the game. While the 31-year-old didn't register a sack, he did apply immense pressure on Burrow, helping the likes of Joey Bosa, Jerry Tillery and Uchenna Nwosu each pick up sacks of their own.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Restructures contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram signed a contract Thursday that fully guaranteed his 2020 salary, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The 31-year-old may still want an extension since he'll be an unrestricted free agent in 2020, but his contract's new structure was enough for Ingram to return to practice. He's now guaranteed to earn $14 million this season, and if he records seven or more sacks for a sixth straight season, he'll be in line for another solid contract next March.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Practices Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (contract dispute) participated in Thursday's practice, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Ingram had been holding out of practices due to a desire to restructure his contract, so his participation Thursday may be indicative of progress regarding negotiations. The veteran pass rusher may be dissatisfied with the fact that none of his $14 million salary for 2020 is guaranteed, in which case it could be possible for the Chargers to make amends without significantly increasing Ingram's cap hit.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Practice absence clarified
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram missed Monday's practice because he is dissatisfied with his contract situation, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

The 31-year-old is entering the final year of a four-year, $64 million contract and could be attempting to leverage the Chargers for a new deal. One major factor for Ingram is the guaranteed money, with none of the $14 million salary in 2020 set to be guaranteed. It's still unclear when the veteran expects to return to the field, if at all, but at this time, there's no evidence that Ingram's availability for the season opener is in jeopardy.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Sidelined for Friday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (undisclosed) didn't practice Friday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Head coach Anthony Lynn didn't reveal anything about whether Ingram was injured at all, but the veteran defensive end was absent from practice. We'll wait for updates after the team's next practice, but at this time, there's no evidence that Ingram's availability for the season opener is in jeopardy.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Another season under 10 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram finished the 2019 season with 39 tackles, seven sacks, five passes defended and an interception across 13 games.

It was the first time in four seasons Ingram failed to play all 16 games, but the defensive end was impactful enough to earn Pro Bowl first-alternate considerations. It's possible the Chargers could rework the 30-year-old's contract given Ingram is in the last year of a four-year deal, which he signed back in 2017, although with just under $3 million set to count against the cap should the team opt to cut him, the Chargers may simply allow him to play out the final season, particularly with two consecutive seasons of less-than-stellar production (14 sacks total).

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Finally records sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram recorded three tackles and 1.5 sacks in the 24-17 loss Sunday to the Raiders.

Sunday was Ingram's first sack since Week 11, capping what figures to be another slightly disappointing season for the veteran pass rusher. Joey Bosa's continual dominance likely has cut into Ingram's potential sack total somewhat, but he's also benefited from the additional attention directed to his younger teammate. Either way, another season with less than 10 sacks could put Ingram's future with the Chargers in jeopardy.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Tacks on another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram tallied five tackles (four solo), a sack and two pass breakups in Monday's 17-7 loss to the Chiefs.

It looked like Father Time was after the 30-year-old defensive end when he posted just one sack over his first five games, only for Ingram to rack up 4.5 sacks over his next three. He continues to log a major snap share with at least 80 percent in every game he's finished without injury.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Disruptive in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram made seven solo tackles and two sacks in Thursday's 26-24 loss to the Raiders.

Ingram had an injury scare in the first half, but he returned to the contest to achieve his first multi-sack performance of the season. He also matched his season high in stops. The 30-year-old defensive end now has 4.5 sacks through seven games, and he'll have a tough task in chasing down Patrick Mahomes in Week 11.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Back after halftime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (shoulder) returned to Thursday's game against the Raiders, Myles Simmons of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Ingram was considered questionable to return after leaving a few minutes before halftime, but he was back on the field to start the second half. The 30-year-old defensive end already has a sack in the contest, so he'll look to add to the total.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Departs with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram was forced out of Thursday's game against the Raiders with a shoulder injury.

Ingram was injured during the second quarter and went straight to the locker room. He recorded three solo tackles and a sack before leaving the contest. Uchenna Nwosu figures to pick up a majority of Ingram's snaps if he's unable to return.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Decimates the opposition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram tallied three tackles, 1.5 sacks and two quarterback hits in the 26-11 win Sunday over the Packers.

Ingram and teammate Joey Bosa wreaked havoc Sunday, as the duo combined for three sacks and limited the Packers to just 50 total yards through the first half. While Ingram hasn't been able to pile up similar sack numbers to his aforementioned teammate, the duo is very much a formidable force when healthy and a matchup nightmare for opposing offenses in any given week.

October 27, 2019 11:44 AM
Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Ready to roll
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (hamstring) will play in Sunday's game against the Bears.

Ingram logged full practice time during Friday's session, so this news solidifies his status for Week 8. The veteran will suit up for the first time since Week 4, and is expected to reclaim his usual starting role at defensive end for the contest.
