Ingram led the team in tackles with seven (five solo), tallied one sack, two tackles for a loss, one interception and one pass defended in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Raiders.
Ingram probably should have had more than one sack, as the seventh-year player was a wrecking ball along the Raiders' battered offensive line all afternoon. And during the few times Ingram wasn't rushing the passer, he played excellent zone coverage, at one point making a brilliant read in the red zone to step in front of a pass to tight end Jared Cook, stopping what had been a bit of a momentum-garnering drive for the Raiders. In fact, the only time the Raiders managed to stop Ingram was when they were on defense, as Ingram recorded his first career carry in the second quarter near the goal line, only to be stuffed inches away from paydirt. The defensive end hasn't been as productive with Joey Bosa (foot) still on the mend, but he can still wreak havoc on unsuspecting offenses if given the opportunity.
Ingram participated in OTAs on Monday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Ingram was absent from the first week of OTAs while he remained in Florida to do some individual workouts, and his return this week will give him the opportunity to work with teammates before the start of the team's mandatory minicamp. He's coming off a strong 2017 campaign where he posted 10.5 sacks, which matched his career-high.
Ingram didn't show up for OTAs on Tuesday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Instead, Ingram stayed in Florida to get ready for training camp that will start in late July. These are voluntary workouts, so Ingram's merely missing out on an opportunity to gel with new teammates. Ingram has racked up 29 sacks in the last three seasons and will start opposite Joey Bosa on a dangerous defensive front.
Ingram recorded a half of a sack as well as three tackles (two solo) in the Week 17 win over the Raiders. He finishes 2017 with 56 tackles, 10.5 sacks, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries, one of which went for a touchdown.
The 10.5 sacks tied a career-high mark for Ingram, as the 28-year-old came on strong to end the season, tallying two sacks in the final four weeks of the campaign. Alongside dominant edge rusher Joey Bosa, Ingram figures to be in prime position to repeat his performance in 2018.
Ingram registered five tackles (three solo) and a sack in the 30-13 loss to the Chiefs on Saturday.
The sack was Ingram's second quarterback takedown in as many weeks, with the sixth-year edge rusher largely ceding sack opportunities to pass-rushing mate Joey Bosa. After a torrid start to the season, Ingram has tailed off considerably, to the point where he remains a risky IDP option most weeks. However, with Bryce Petty and the Jets on tap for Week 16, it wouldn't be unreasonable to suggest Ingram makes it three straight weeks with at least half a sack.
