San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Melvin Ingram will miss at least the first six weeks of the season after being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to open the season.
Ingram is recovering from knee surgery following an offseason injury. He is eligible to begin practicing after Week 6, and the team will have a 21-day window from the day he begins practicing to either add him to the active roster or have him remain on Reserve-PUP through the end of the season.
Cornerback Steve Williams (pectoral) and defensive tackle Byron Jerideau (shoulder) were placed on injured reserve. Williams is a fifth-round selection this year and Jerideau is a rookie free agent.
