    I just saw this on TV, but am unable to find any news story about it elsewhere. This is really horrible for the chargers. Ingram really showed a lot of promise for this year. Our pass rush is really ****** now. :(

    I really hope it isn't torn. We're ****** if it is. Gotta make a strong push for John Abraham or Dwight Freeney now.

    Feeling a little snake-bitten. Finally seeing some positive movement after 4 years of decline and now we get one those "just the 2nd day of non-contact practice" injuries. Hey football gods, what gives? Throw us a frickin bone here.

    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers "fear" second-year OLB Melvin Ingram has suffered a torn ACL.
    The Union-Tribue San Diego reports Ingram will receive a "couple more opinions" before the Chargers decide what to do. A torn ACL would be a big blow for the rebuilding Bolts, who are "hopeful" the 2012 first-rounder can take a big step forward this season after they let Antwan Barnes and Shaun Phillips walk in free agency. Ingram played just 475 snaps as a rookie, notching one sack and 41 tackles. The Chargers' pass-rush is about to go from an area of need to an area of crisis.

    Is Freeney even a real possibility? Cap wise I mean. Before we signed our rookies I saw it reported we had 5.5M left. After we sign Fluker we'll have around 1.5M left. Not nearly enough. What do we do? We cut someone else? Clary?

    Such is life as a Charger fan.

    Melvin was the only hope we had of an edge rush this year, now that hope is gone. As for his career...we'll see, he didn't have much pure speed to begin with.

    The season may be done before it even started. Really pulling for that 6-10 record now, or worse, so we can snag Clowney. Get a LT in the 2nd round. With Ingram out for the entire season, a pass rusher is a bigger need than LT. Dunlap it is.

    So between Dunlap at LT and no pass rush we will need a new LT and likely a new QB in addition to more pass rush next year. Great.......

    What a crappy way to look at things, I'd rather "pull" for one of the other OLB to step up (long shot I know, but that's what I would prefer happens), you, keep rooting for your team to fail, happy sundays next fall :tdown:

    I'm not hoping that fail, it's just getting more and more likely. This is a HUGE blow to our defense. Clowney is a player said to only come once every decade. Would take him an instant over a LT.

    Jeez! :mad:
    Seriously?!? :eek:
    C'mon God...do you know how many decades I've suffered with this team?!?
    (and I've already lost Cal Bear & Charger Chuck Muncie today!!!)

    Well, it sounds like a preliminary call...maybe we can still get lucky.

    Silver lining? Uh...really? Well, I guess we can say "At least it's not Rivers or Weddle"

    We couldn't over pay anyone if we wanted to, we have no money thanks to AJ.

    Chargers officially announce Melvin Ingram has suffered a torn ACL. No other information released



    Time to get Freeney on the phone Now!!!!! The idea of knowing SP signed an affordable 1 million dollar contract with Denver pisses me even more off right now

    No doubt this is a hit, however, the season doesn't start for sometime. Interested in seeing what Telesco does given time. Hmm..

    Telesco's going to bring in Nick Barnett, or Israel Idonije bank it

    It sure seems like the odds are stacked against Telesco and McCoy right now.
