San Diego Chargers LB Larry English said he hopes to earn the starting outside linebacker job that LB Melvin Ingram (knee) held before his season-ending injury in OTAs. 'I'm just concentrating on being able to provide what the team needs. [Head coach Mike McCoy] emphasized to all of us that now is the time for someone to step up and provide what we'll miss from Melvin, and I have that opportunity now to be the guy the team needs,' English said.
Huddle Up: Curb that enthusiasm as English's 4-year pro career has produced only 4 starts, 64 total tackles, 8.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and no interceptions -- not good numbers for the 16th overall pick in 2009.
