Chargers activate Ingram, move Verrett to IR

San Diego, CA ( – The San Diego Chargers activated outside
linebacker Melvin Ingram from injured reserve/designated to return and placed
rookie cornerback Jason Verrett on IR among a series of roster moves made

Ingram has missed San Diego’s last seven games after hurting his hip in the
Chargers’ 30-21 victory over Seattle in Week 2. The 2012 first-round pick
notched one sack, eight tackles and a forced fumble in two contests before
being sidelined.

The 25-year-old pass rusher, who was limited to just four games last season by
a torn ACL, is expected to play in the Chargers’ clash with Oakland on Sunday.

Verrett, San Diego’s first-round selection in this year’s draft, tore the
labrum in his left shoulder last month and temporarily played through the
injury, though he was inactive for the Chargers’ Week 9 loss at Miami that
preceded the team’s bye week.

The former TCU standout is likely to undergo surgery and finishes his rookie
year with 19 tackles, one interception and four passes defensed while starting
four of six games.

Additionally, outside linebacker Cordarro Law was waived due to Ingram’s
return and safety Adrian Phillips was promoted from the practice squad to the
active roster.

Law had seven tackles and a sack in three games after beginning the season on
the Chargers’ practice squad.
