Ingram enters OTAs at 246 pounds, after losing 20 pounds during the offseason, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

While Ingram never appeared to be out of shape, he's played just 13 games over the last two seasons, and he believes losing weight could help him stay healthy. He's now somewhat on the small side for a 3-4 outside linebacker, but that won't necessarily be an issue when it comes to rushing the passer. The 26-year-old former first-round draft pick had four sacks in nine games last season, finally showing some of the potential that warranted such a high selection. While it's always wise to be wary of the "best shape of his life" stories, Ingram has the right combination of talent, role and health to break out in his fourth season.

The Chargers say Ingram has come to camp in incredible shape and looks impressive in early workouts, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Bolts are counting on a healthy and productive Ingram to give them a much needed boost in their pass rush. Ingram is now 24 months removed from ACL reconstruction surgery and is said to be back to peak form finally. The hip injury that cost him two months in 2014 is also supposedly fully healed. The Chargers have only seen glimpses of what their former first round pick can do, so his improved health is great news for them.

Ingram (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday's game against the Raiders, Ricky Henne of chargers.com reports.

The return of Ingram, who will see his first game action since Week 2, bolsters the Chargers' pass-rushing depth, but a wait-and-see approach is in order from an IDP perspective.

Ingram (hamstring) has been activated from IR/designated to return, The San Diego-Union Tribune reports

Ingram is expected to play for the first time since Week 2, but there's no guarantee he'll have the same starting role. Rookie outside linebacker Jerry Attaochu is also expected to return from a hamstring injury, joining a position group that already has Jarrett Johnson and Dwight Freeney healthy. All four players figure to get playing time at outside linebacker, which is good for the San Diego defense but probably not Ingram's IDP production.

Ingram (hip) is expected to practice Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Ingram has been sidelined with a hip/hamstring injury since Week 2, but he is eligible to be activated from IR-R this week, and should be able to play Sunday if he can make it through practice without issue.

Ingram (hamstring, hip) was placed on injured reserve-designated to return Saturday, San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

It's a tough loss for the Chargers, as Ingram, the 18th overall pick in 2012, is currently tied for the league lead with eight quarterback hurries. He won't be eligible to play again until Week 11, meaning San Diego will have to lean heavily on the likes of Jerry Attaoechu (hamstring) and sixth-round pick Tourek Williams, though the team could move Reggie Walker to the outside or add Cordarro Law from the practice squad.
