Heisman Winner Mark Ingram Not Likely to Play In Penn State Game


Alabama's Mark Ingram interview
Alabama coach Nick Saban made a statement Wednesday concerning the playing status of last year's Heisman winning running back Mark Ingram for the Penn State game. It appears that it will be unlikely that he will play against Penn State on Saturday.

Although the left knee has been "improving every day", Coach Saban is indicating that it is most likely that Ingram probably won't be able to play against Penn State.

The medical staff continues to evaluate Ingram "day-to-day", Saban said. "He hasn't had any swelling or problems. If he can continue to progress—I would say he's probably not going to be ready to play this week. He might be ready by the game, but he won't be able to practice enough."

The Penn State game renews a intersectional football rivalry that made college football history throughout the years, with the most famous moment being the January 1979 goal-line stand by Alabama to win the next-next-to-last national championship for Bear Bryant. S

ince then, the two bluebloods of college football met every year from 1981-1990, with Alabama winning 6 times. One of those victories over Penn State was when a retiring Coach Bear Bryant led Alabama over Penn State (1-0) for their only loss during their 1982 national championship season.

Backup running backs, Trent Richardson & Eddie Lacy will team up to run the ball against the Nittany Lions, Saturday 9/11 and will be telvised on ESPN/ESPN3.
