Melvin Ingram May Have Torn ACL

Here comes the first injury fear of OTAs. Second year linebacker Melvin Ingram may have torn his ACL. He is seeking another opinion, but that is the fear coming out of camp today.

Ingram is expected to be the starting outside linebacker this season with both Antwan Barnes and Shaun Phillips gone. The next man up would be Larry English or rookie Tourek Williams. If Ingram is expected to be out for an extended period of time, the Chargers may have to take a look at free agency to pick up another rent-a-vet.

John Abraham and Dwight Freeney are still available. Both are asking a lot in free agency and the Chargers will probably look in a different direction. Nick Barnett could also be a possibility.
