San Diego Chargers Daily Links: November 21, 2013

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

Your daily dose of San Diego Chargers news & notes from around the web.

Many Checkpoints Remain Before Ingram Activated - Ricky Henne
"He did a nice job," said Head Coach Mike McCoy. "He’s a little rusty in certain areas which is expected, but it’s great to have him back out there. He’s been chomping at the bit for a long time to get out there… He loves the game. He’s been around the whole year. Ever since he had his injury in the offseason he’s been out there (rehabbing), he’s in a lot of the meetings and he goes on the road with us and everything. We’re looking forward to getting him back out there."

Trap game? Chiefs insist focus is on Chargers ... and improving - Yahoo Sports
"This is no trap game," free safety Kendrick Lewis said when asked if the Chiefs would overlook San Diego. "The Chargers are the next team up. We know what comes after that (the Broncos), but we don't play that game until next week. We are focused on the Chargers."

Chargers could learn from Chiefs about tackling - Eric Williams
The Chargers have struggled with poor tackling all season. McCoy said his team missed 12 tackles in the Chargers’ loss to Miami on Sunday, allowing 92 yards after contact. He also lamented his defense's poor execution of the fundamentals, including repeatedly jumping offside.

What Has Happened to the NFL's Running Game? - Bill Barnwell
I count 24 backs who received 100 or more carries in 2012 and have received that many in 2013. Of those 24, nearly half (11) have lost a half-yard or more off their average yards per carry from last season. Just three — DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews, and LeSean McCoy — are averaging a half-yard per carry more than they did a year ago.

The Inside Story of How the NFL's Plan for Its 1st Openly Gay Player Fell Apart - Mike Freeman
The team had decided yes. The player had decided the same. It was set. It was going to happen. An NFL player was going to publicly say he was gay and then play in the NFL. What happened before that moment showed how parts of the NFL are progressive and ready for change. Then, what happened next showed how the sport is still in some ways fearful of it.
