The early reviews have been positive on Chargers rookie linebacker Melvin Ingram. As a member of the punt team, however, Ingram needs work.
With Vikings rookie receiver Jarius Wright waiting to field a punt inside the 10 and the ball sailing over his head and Wright feigning that he was about to catch the ball, Ingram wiped Wright out.
The penalty resulted in a 15-yard penalty for Ingram, the 18th overall pick in the draft.
The Chargers lead the Vikings in a game that has featured sputtering offenses for both teams, 6-0.
