Bad News For Duke

No, de-Heismaned Reggie Bush isn’t going to “re-amateur” himself and use his final year of college eligibility at Duke, but last year’s injured Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram is “ready to go” for the No. 1 Crimson Tide, according to Alabama coach Nick Saban.

Evidently, Ingram has practiced all week for the top-ranked Crimson Tide after missing the first two games following arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Saban said Wednesday he hasn’t decided on Ingram’s role his first game back in a game where the Tide is heavily favored.

“He’s done well,” Saban said. “He’s running fast and hard and cutting and doing well.

Ingram is also facing questions of whether the Heisman winner would start after Trent Richardson averaged 6.6 yards on 32 carries during his absence. Richardson also ranks second in the SEC in all-purpose yardage.

“We’re going to play him in the game and we haven’t decided exactly how we’ll do it. Guys don’t lose their jobs around here just because they get injured.”
