Chargers’ Melvin Ingram, Hunter Henry questionable vs. Steelers

Melvin Ingram, Hunter Henry, Chargers, Steelers

Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram and tight end Hunter Henry are questionable to play on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, per the team’s official Friday injury report.

Ingram has a hamstring injury that took him out of Week 5’s loss to the Denver Broncos. He had a limited practice on Friday, similar to last week. The Pro Bowler did not practice in the two days before. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said he would be a game-time decision.

“He’s a veteran player, and he knows how to take care of himself,” Lynn said on Friday, via Eric D. Williams of ESPN. “So if he tells me he can to go, then I trust him.”

Henry was a full participant on Friday, despite his questionable status. The tight end is working his way back into action since suffering a tibial plateau fracture in his left knee in Week 1. He has failed to play a game since sustaining the early-season injury. Even if he plays, don’t expect much from him on Sunday.

“We’ll come out [Saturday], and we’ll have a jog through and see how he feels,” Lynn said, per Williams. “If feels good, then yeah, I’ll put him out there for a few plays.”

While the two are questionable to play, kicker Michael Badgley (groin) is doubtful, so is safety Nasir Adderley (hamstring) and running back Justin Jackson (calf).

The Chargers are 2-3 heading into Week 6’s matchup with the 1-4 Steelers. The game will be on “Sunday Night Football,” which is the second time in two seasons the two have played against each other on primetime.
