Oh No, Heisman Trophy Winner Mark Ingram Injures His Knee. Won't Play In Alabama's Season Opener

Things aren't starting off to good for Mark Ingram to repeat as the Heisman Trophy winner. Monday Ingram suffered an injury to his left knee in practice.

Ingram had an "arthroscopic procedure" performed on the injured knee Tuesday morning and won't be available for Alabama's season opener against San Jose State. Not sure of Ingram's' status after that.

Here's what Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban said in a statement released by Alabama media relations:

"Mark will definitely be out for this week's game against San Jose State and we will manage this on a week to week basis beyond this week. We will make every decision in the future based on what's best for Mark and his career as we consult with Dr. Cain and Dr. Andrews on his progress. This is not an injury that will affect Mark's future ability to make a full recovery in a relatively short time frame."

I can hear the collective "oh s&#t" coming from the state of Alabama. Don't worry, its San Jose State and Trent Richardson is a hell of a back-up.

More when we know it.

Won't miss a beat with Trent in week 1, but Bamar's would certainly hope to have both 100% with Penn St. and Arky looming.
