Chargers fans are holding their breath right now, and not because someone in their vicinity has broken wind.

First-round draft pick Melvin Ingram exited the game with a leg injury in the third quarter.

He was sitting on the bench after exiting the field.  We’ll update as soon as our pals Paul Allen, Pete Bercich, and Ben Leber pass along more info.

The Chargers lead a lackluster preseason effort for both teams, 6-3.

UPDATE 10:47 p.m. ET:  Per Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego, the Chargers say that Ingram has a bruised thigh.

    I hope he’s ok. This guy is fun to watch.

    Boy, the chargers just can’t get a break. I see why most teams are limiting their starters in pre-season, its not worth a serious injury.

    Glad somebody drafted him ahead of me in my fantasy league. I had plans on drafting him too.

    Passing wind jokes? Really? Where they get these writers. Is Mike 12 or something?

    For those of us who aren’t chargers fans and don’t pay much attention to rookies until they, you know, *do something*… how about mentioning their position in the article.
