Not much here for Square, who is her for emergency depth along the defensive line.

Ingram doesn’t have the sack numbers just yet, and it sounds like he’ll be forced to miss a few weeks with a hamstring injury. However, he’s been a consistent presence for the Chargers this year, and will look to ramp up the pass rush when he returns. His grade slightly drops for now because he played just eight snaps against Miami.

I’ve loved Nwosu since he first stepped into a preseason game for the Chargers, and he always seems to have a high motor and is capable of making game-changing plays (see Baltimore playoff game). He’s the best run-stopping linebacker on the team thus far, and it looks like he’ll have a few more chances to rush the passer with Ingram forced to miss time.
