Panic in the streets of T-Town: Ingram out

Scratch another Heisman for Mark Ingram?

Alabama's Heisman Trophy winning back will miss Saturday's season opener against San Jose State after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Tuesday on his left knee. Ingram hurt the knee in Monday's practice. After Saturday, he will be listed week-to-week.

"We will make every decision in the future based on what’s best for Mark and his career as we consult with [the doctors] on his progress," Nick Saban said in a press release.  "This is not an injury that will affect Mark’s future ability to make a full recovery in a relatively short time frame.”
 

After San Jose State, Alabama faces Penn State on Sept. 11, followed by Duke and Arkansas to close out the month.  In the case of minor arthroscopic surgery, it is conceivable Ingram could be back for the Penn State game.

"It was a situation where everyone involved thought it would be better to take care of it now, so he would not have any issues with it later on in the season," Saban added.

Chasing another Heisman is probably down on the list of concerns for Ingram at this point. Alabama is well stocked at the position. Sophomore Trent Richardson, a preseason all-SEC pick by the media, will likely start in Ingram's place.

I don't think they'll miss a beat with Trent Richardson getting most of the touches. 

As for you, Jaywalker 2, it would be advisable for you to remember the old adage, which I'll paraphrase:  It is better to be silent and presumed a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

If Richardson is so much better than Ingram, why was Ingram the primary ball carrier last year? Come on Bama fans. Your boy Saban is going to play the best player. I've never seen Lacy but he's probably good. If Ingram is hurt for an extended amount of time, it's a loss that wil be felt.

Sorry Dodd, no one is panicking. Richardson and Lacy > Ingram.

2009 Heisman Ingram, 2010 Heisman Richardson

Break out party for Richardson, who will end up winning the Heisman. 200 to 250 yards!

It won't be an issue.  If you recall it wasn't Ingram that ran over Auburn it was Richardson and word is Eddie Lacy could be better than both of them.

Yeah, Jaywalker, you're right. No way the defending nat'l champs can overcome San Jose St without Ingram. It's over. Not just this week, but the whole season. Over before it started.

Maybe just a little premature to say "stick a fork in them", don't you think? Bit of wishful thinking by an optimistic Auburnite?
