New, comments

In the second day of OTAs, it is feared the the San Diego Chargers' first round pick in 2012, Melvin Ingram, tore his ACL and will be out for the entire 2013 season.

Pinch yourself. Pinch everyone. Let's hope this is a nightmare.

There was no hitting going on today. I don't even think the guys were wearing pads. What a freak incident.

I've been saying all offseason that I was worried about the San Diego Chargers pass rush in 2013, because they were putting all of the responsibility on Melvin Ingram (who hadn't exactly proved himself dominant in his rookie season). I compared Ingram to Larry English. I didn't know, or hope, that something like this would happen.

I would imagine that, if the ACL is torn, there's no chance of Ingram returning to play this season.

Ummm, who is still available? Dwight Freeney? That could work, right? Maybe? Or I guess we could just root for Jadeveon Clowney AND Melvin Ingram in 2014.
