The San Diego Chargers are going to get a little boost in their pass rush this week with the return of Melvin Ingram. Ingram will be back on the practice field on Wednesday and will be working to get back on the field for the team later in the year. His status for the rest of the season still will be up in the air. The team will take it day-to-day to see if he has the ability to make a return and will see if e can make an impact for the team on defense. It still is a possibility that they place him on the IR list.
The Chargers are in desperate need for some pass rush help. We have used Tourek Williams and Thomas Keiser used on the edges the last couple of games. Jarret Johnson was unable to play a lot over the weekend and Reggie Walker had to be used off of the edge on Sunday. If this is going to set back Melvin Ingram at all in the future, then the team should just look to bring him back next year.
