The team's website reported today that Melvin Ingram, the team's 3rd year outside linebacker has been placed on the "Injured Reserve - Designated for Return" list.

Early Saturday afternoon, the San Diego Charger's website reported that Melvin Ingram had been placed on the IR, but under the "Designated for Return" status. This means that Melvin Ingram will not be back on the field anytime before Week 11.

An unspecified hip injury was cited for the reason for the IR designation. The team's website also did not specifically mention when Ingram suffered the injury. This makes the second straight season in which Ingram has received this designation. Ingram will miss at least seven games in 2014 after missing twelve games in 2013.

With rookie Jeremiah Attaochu dealing with a hamstring injury, this creates some depth issues at OLB for Sunday's game in Buffalo against the Bills. The team has not announced any corresponding roster moves as of this afternoon. Former CFL player and preseason standout OLB Cordarro Law is the most likely to be added from the team's practice squad.
