The San Diego Chargers got back on the practice field today. They better be working extra hard on some of the fundamentals, like tackling. They may want to spend the whole day on red zone offense as well.

Melvin Ingram joined the guys in practice today. He was limited in his participation. The team is planning to ease him back to practice. He won’t be on the field any time soon. I bet the Chargers see how the next few games go before they decide to activate him or place him on the IR.

Just like normal for Jarret Johnson and Eddie Royal, they both were on the sideline for practice. Eddie Royal has not been able to join in on practice for a while with a toe injury and Jarret Johnson has been limited with a hamstring injury. Those guys will likely be questionable this week again.

King Dunlap and Johnny Patrick were both on the sideline again. Dunlap is still sidelined with the neck injury and Johnny Patrick had a concussion on Sunday.

Keenan Allen was back on the field for practice. He missed most of the 4th quarter on Sunday against the Dolphins because he hyperextended his leg.
