Melvin Ingram has been activated to the 53 man roster and will make his debut this weekend against the New York Giants, according to Michael Gehlken. That boy has put in some work! That is incredible that Melvin has been able to get back up to playing status.

That is some exciting news for a defense that has struggled to get pressure on the quarterback. The defense has struggled doing anything on the field. I am excited to see him get onto the field. I know it will be his first action in a long time, but I still love that he is out there and ready to make some things happen.

Will he be up to full form? Likely not, but he is on the field working. I love the attitude that the young man is bringing to the defense.

If/when he puts Eli Manning on the turf, I will be screaming my head off. I am stoked to have him on the field. I wish he could start, but I doubt that he will be out there working like that so quickly.
