2018 Training Camp Preview: Offensive Line - Ricky Henne
There may not be a player Chargers fans are more eager to see in the coming weeks than Lamp, who missed all of 2017 after suffering an ACL injury early in training camp.

NFL run-defense rankings: All 32 teams entering 2018 - PFF Analysis Team
Edge rushers Joey Bosa and Ingram are both more than capable of stop the run if need be, but both sold out more as pass-rushers in 2017. They had one of the better run defenses in the NFL back in 2016 while Bosa and Ingram both had superb run grades. Ingram dropped off to an 82.5 run defense grade this past season while Bosa went to a 74.6. While their run defense suffered, the overall effectiveness of the defense improved greatly.
