Ingram though did have an arthroscopic knee surgery before his junior year at Alabama during the offseason according to reporter Evan Silva.
Not good to have two knee surgeries in that span of time, but usually these are done to “clean up” any bone fragments or excessive scar tissue build up in the area. But it’s still something to keep an eye on.
The Saints can only hope that Ingram holds up to the rough duties that will be expected of him. The team gave up a lot to get him. The Saints traded their 2011 second round draft pick and their first round pick in the 2012 Draft to select Ingram last year.
This ended up costing the Saints in the end since their second round pick was forfeited by the NFL for the teams alleged involvement in a “pay for performance” scandal.
Ingram was having a decent season for a rookie until his injury. The thought is he should be able to participate in training camp when it arrives.
