Melvin Ingram weighs 246 pounds after playing at 266 pounds last year.
Ingram cut the weight in an effort to become more durable -- he's missed 19 games over the last two years. "Being at 260 or 265, 266, wasn't working, really. I felt quick but I kept getting injured. ... The lighter you are, the less stress it is on your body, the less stress it is on your knees, your hips, your joints or your ankles, your toes -- everything." The Chargers are counting on a Ingram, the No. 18 overall pick in 2012, to finally sustain health and lead a dormant pass rush that ranked 29th in the league in sacks last year.
