Mark Ingram Out For Opener
According to this story on ESPN, reigning Heisman Trophy winner running back Mark Ingram recently had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and will miss Alabama's season opener against lowly San Jose State. As anyone who follows college football is aware, star players play limited roles in season openers anyway so Ingram won't be terribly missed for this game. Expect to see sophmore RB Trent Richardson (who happened to rush for 109 yards in the championship game last season) get the bulk of the carries as the Crimson Tide roll over the Spartans. (bet you didn't know this was San Jose's mascot, did you?)
The redshirt junior Ingram decided to skip declaring for the draft last year to help Alabama make another run at the BSC championship and if minor, this injury will not have an effect on a title run. Healthy recovery, Mark. Roll Tide!
