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.

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.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Questionable Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game at Chicago.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (hamstring) will be a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Ingram missed the entire week of practice leading up to this past Sunday's loss to the Titans, in which he was predictably inactive. It's a good sign that Ingram's back to work early in the week, and he's in a good position to return for Sunday's game against the Bears as long as he avoids a setback.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Listed as DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (hamstring) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Ingram will miss his second straight game but he was able to get in a limited practice session Friday, which bodes well for his Week 7 status. Uchenna Nwosu figures to start at defensive end in Ingram's place.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Questionable for SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Ingram was able to practice on a limited basis Friday. While he's off to a slow start with only one sack this season after finishing with no fewer than 7.0 in each of the last four campaigns, the defensive end would still be missed if he's unable to suit up for Sunday Night Football.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Ingram missed Sunday's loss to the Broncos due to a hamstring injury, and he doesn't yet appear to have made tangible progress in his recovery. If Ingram isn't able to suit up Week 6, expect Uchenna Nwosu to draw another start opposite Joey Bosa.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Broncos.

This isn't surprising news since Ingram was considered a longshot to play after missing every practice this week. Expect Uchenna Nwosu to fill in as the starting defensive end opposite Joey Bosa.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Tagged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Broncos.

It was reported earlier this week that Ingram was expected to miss multiple weeks with this hamstring injury. The Chargers are still giving Ingram a chance to play by not ruling him out completely. However, he didn't participate in Thursday's practice, so he's trending toward sitting out.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Slated for multi-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram is expected to miss a couple weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in Sunday's win over the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It's a rough timeline for Ingram's return, but it appears unlikely he's able to play in Week 5's game versus the Broncos. The Chargers have been plagued with injuries on defense, and it's unclear who will fill in for Ingram. One candidate is Isaac Rochell, who has played at least 10 defensive snaps in every game and recorded a sack against the Dolphins.

Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Dealing with hamstring pull
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn said following Sunday's win against the Dolphins that Ingram is dealing with a pulled hamstring, and it's unclear how long he'll be out, Eric D. Williams of reports.

Ingram was unable to return after he suffered the injury in the second quarter and, as evidenced by this news, could be out for more time. It's not a guarantee, but the team could elect to have Ingram undergo an MRI to nail down the severity of the injury. The fact that the team doesn't know how long Ingram will be out shows there should be real concern over his status for next week's game against Denver.
