The third-year pro will have to wait at least eight weeks for an encore performance.

The San Diego Chargers announced Saturday they placed Ingram on the injured reserve-designated to return list due to a hip injury.

Ingram formed a fierce duo with Dwight Freeney to start the season. Ingram compiled a sack, a tackle for loss and a forced fumble in last week's win.

The 25-year-old  and 2012 first-round pick missed 12 games last season with a torn ACL.

Ingram will be eligible to return to the playing field following the team's Nov. 9 bye week.
