Ingram has surgery....
1 Attachment(s)
Mark Ingram underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday and will be sidelined for the next six weeks.

It's Ingram's third known surgery since August of 2010 and second on the knee, which was also "scoped" just prior to his final college season. The recovery timeline given suggests this is another routine scope, although it's a growing concern for a player multiple teams reportedly removed from their boards leading up to the 2011 draft due to knee worries. Ingram's other surgery was an operation to repair a turf-toe injury in January. Ingram will enter the 2012 season with medical red flags in addition to preexisting workload concerns.

Ok now I'm starting to get real worried about this guy.

More bad news. What a surprise. At least, until the injuries start piling up, we have depth at this position.

Colston has 3 or 4 of these a month.

His "injury" status has been suspect since the toe.

Not a good sign. 1 year in the league, two surgeries? Ugh. Fingers crossed this is just some sort of routine deal.

This is why you never overpay for a RB; they're a dime a dozen. I didn't see anything from Ingram last year that I haven't seen from Chris Ivory.
