Chargers OLB Ingram out for Sunday

Posted by Chris Brown on September 19, 2014 – 3:01 pm







It was expected that Chargers starting RB Ryan Mathews would miss Sunday’s game with his knee injury, but after not practicing on Friday OLB Melvin Ingram, one of San Diego’s premier pass rushers is also out with a hamstring and hip injury. Ingram was a player on the rise and had a sack and forced fumble on Russell Wilson last week. It’s a loss for the Chargers.

San Diego has another young pass rusher in LB Jeremy Attaochu, who is questionable with a hamstring injury too. He hasn’t practiced all week and is likely a game time decision. WR Keenan Allen is also questionable with a groin injury, as he was limited in practice Friday.
