    Per ESPN - Linebacker Melvin Ingram suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament, the San Diego Chargers announced in a statement.

    The left knee injury was suffered during the Chargers' organized team activities Tuesday morning.
    Ingram was San Diego's first-round pick in the 2012 draft. He had 41 tackles (21 solo), one forced fumble and one sack for a young, developing linebacking corps.

    The Chargers saw veteran edge rushers Shaun Phillips and Antwan Barnes leave in free agency and had been expecting Ingram, who came on strong toward the end of last season, to provide a strong rush.

    With Ingram presumably lost for the season, San Diego is bringing in free agent Dwight Freeney on Wednesday for a visit, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

    San Diego's new general manager, Tom Telesco, spent the past 15 seasons in Indianapolis, where the Colts drafted Freeney.

    It sucks to lose a player during OTA's but it happens.

    The reason I bring this up is because of the bolded part. They will most definitely try to sign a vet to replace him. Telesco's ties to Indy probably mean they go after Dwight, which makes sense (kind of) because he played 3-4 OLB last year (albeit not very well, but at least he did). The article didn't say it directly, but I imagine they will try to bring in John for a visit if they can't get Dwight.

    Personally, I hope they land Dwight so we can still get John.

    haha why cause he didn't light it up last year at a new position and tore his ACL this year? Premature comment.

    Nope. He's a bust because he's a bust. This is what I said before he was drafted, so I stick with it. He's shown nothing to make me think I'll be wrong.

    This only adds to it... He will be an unknown the rest of his career.

    He had to change positions and I remember hearing positive news about him coming around later in the season. He doesn't really warrant a "bust" label yet.
