  • Dolphins' Melvin Ingram: Sacks Allen twice

    Ingram notched three solo tackles and two sacks, along with one forced fumble and one fumble recovery, during Sunday's 21-19 win over Buffalo. Ingram logged another performance as an impact player on Miami's defense, handling a season-high 62 percent of defensive snaps. Through three contests the veteran looks like a standout free agency acquisition, and he'll have an opportunity to keep his momentum up versus Joe Burrow and the Bengals on Thursday Night Football.

  • Dolphins' Melvin Ingram: Scoop and score in Week 1

    Ingram recorded two tackles and a fumble recovery for a touchdown during Miami's season-opening win over New England on Sunday. Ingram recovered a fumble by Patriots quarterback Mac Jones before walking into the end zone for a two-yard touchdown. The starting linebacker played 32 of the Dolphins' 57 defensive snaps Sunday, and he should make an impact as a pass rusher along the edge of the team's defensive front this season.

  • Chiefs' Melvin Ingram: Will make K.C. debut Sunday

    Ingram (groin) is active for Sunday's contest against the Packers, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. Ingram was traded to the Chiefs on Tuesday, and he will make his debut for his new team Sunday. Coach Andy Reid said the 2012 first-round pick "looked good" at practice, but it's unclear if he will be limited during the Chiefs' Week 9 matchup with the Packers. After recording at least seven sacks in five straight seasons, Ingram has recorded just one over his last 13 appearances.

The veteran linebacker will look to make an immediate impact on a Chiefs defense that has struggled throughout this season. Expect Ingram to be available Sunday, but it's not yet known if the three-time Pro Bowler will be limited in any capacity.

  • Steelers' Melvin Ingram: Doubtful for Week 8

    Ingram (groin) is doubtful for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Browns, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Ingram was a limited participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he didn't practice Friday and is officially doubtful for Sunday. If he is ruled out for Week 8, expect Derrek Tuszka to see increased snaps in a reserve role behind T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith

  • Steelers' Melvin Ingram: Links up with Steelers

    Ingram is signing a one-year contract with the Steelers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The 32-year-old Ingram is a low-cost replacement for Bud Dupree, who signed with the Titans earlier this offseason after recording 19.5 sacks in his final two years with the Steelers. Ingram had no sacks during his seven-game, injury-riddled 2020 campaign, but he'd previously put up five straight seasons with seven or more, including double digits in 2015 and 2017. Still, he won't necessarily be handed a starting job in Pittsburgh, considering the team has 2020 third-round pick Alex Highsmith as a second option to replace Dupree at the starting OLB spot across from superstar T.J. Watt. There hasn't been any suggestion Ingram's knee injury from last November is still an issue, though it may have been a factor in his remaining a free agent for so long.

  • Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Will miss at least three weeks

    The Chargers placed Ingram (knee) on injured reserve Friday, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports. Ingram played a season-high 92 percent of the snaps on defense in last week's win over the Jets, but he apparently suffered a knee injury in the process. He's not eligible to return until Week 15, a Thursday night game against the Raiders. With Uchenna Nwosu (shoulder) also out Week 12, Isaac Rochell figures to start opposite Joey Bosa on Los Angeles' defensive line.

  • Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Labeled game-time decision

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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: Finally records sack

    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: Back after halftime

    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: Ready to roll

    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.
