    Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Ingram leads the defense at Baltimore

    Ingram had four tackles and 1.5 sacks in a losing effort on Sunday at Baltimore. Ingram had a good game trying to hold things together on a defense that was missing Manti Te'o and Eric Weddle from the start and also had Corey Liuget, Jason Verrett, Patrick Robinson, Darrell Stucky, and Jahleel Addae all miss time due to injury at one point or another during the game. Ingram, who now has 30 tackles and three sacks, has been solid but unspectacular through eight games this year.

    Chargers OLB Melvin Ingram sheds 20 pounds

    Chargers outside linebacker Melvin Ingram is sporting a different body these days. During the offseason, Ingram changed his eating habits and dropped 20 pounds — going from 266 to 246. Ingram stopped eating beef and pork, electing to consume chicken, fish, vegetables, fruit and rice. He's no longer eating breads, pastas or potatoes either. "Being at 260 or 265, 266, wasn't working, really," Ingram told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "I felt quick but I kept getting injured. You've got to nitpick at your own body, your own self, your own game. ... I felt like playing lighter would be a better thing for me. The lighter you are, the less stress it is on your body, the less stress it is on your knees, your hips, your joints or your ankles, your toes — everything." Ingram now only has a body fat of eight percent and underwent a new training program while away in Miami. Now, Ingram said he feels ready to show what he can do on the football field this season. "I feel it's going to be a whole different explosion, a whole different Melvin," Ingram said. "I feel like that 260-Melvin is gone."
