Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Had a big year for the Bolts defense
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

2015 was Ingram's best year as a pro as he logged 65 total tackles and 10.5 sacks while playing in all 16 games.

Injuries in both 2013 and 2014 limited Ingram's early development, but he broke out in a big way in 2015. In addition to all of the tackles and sacks, Ingram also showed his versatility by adding six passes defensed and three forced fumbles. The Chargers had a very disappointing season overall, but the Ingram was one of the few bright spots, and he should be even better in 2016.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Records two sacks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ingram notched six tackles (four solo), adding two sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Ingram had a monster day for the Chargers in what very likely could be their last game in San Diego. The fourth-year linebacker now has eight sacks on the year after he picked up two more Sunday, to go along with 56 tackles and three forced fumbles. Ingram seems to be getting better year after year and should continue to provide solid value as an IDP moving forward.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Ingram leads the defense at Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melvin 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
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

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."
