LB Melvin Ingram Tears ACL

San Diego is already having to deal with the injury bug this season. It has been reported that last year's first round selection, Melvin Ingram,  has torn his ACL in OTAs. Ingram is already expected to miss the entire season. This was to be Ingram's sophomore campaign, one which hopefully would have seen him develop into an elite pass rusher. Instead, he will spend this season on the sideline. San Diego has been linked to former Indianapolis Colt Dwight Freeney. Freeney could provide a veteran option at rush linebacker for the Chargers. Freeney was one of the most dominant 4-3 ends in football over the last decade. When the Colts switched to a new 3-4 defense, Freeney switched to outside linebacker. OTAs are scheduled to finish this afternoon and resume on May 20th.
