NFR: Melvin Ingram tears ACL

Tough break for Chargers and Ingram, who they were hoping would break out this year.

Chargers were counting on linebacker for pass rush help.

The San Diego Chargers' 2013 season suffered a big blow more than three months from kickoff when linebacker Melvin Ingram suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during OTA work Tuesday.

Ingram, the Chargers' first-round pick in 2012 from the University of South Carolina, was expected to be a key cog in the 3-4 defensive scheme that was already questionable in the pass rush department.

The Chargers could have a tough time finding a suitable replacement, given that the best available pass rushers in free agency - John Abraham and Dwight Freeney - are both more suited as 4-3 ends rather than 3-4 linebackers.
