Bama's Ingram ready to go against Duke
Alabama coach Nick Saban says Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram is "ready to go."
Ingram has practiced all week for the top-ranked Crimson Tide ahead of Saturday's visit to Duke. The tailback missed the first two games after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.
Saban said Wednesday he hasn't decided Ingram's role for his first game back. Trent Richardson has started in his place.
The coach says Ingram has been running and cutting well, and it's important for Ingram to play against Duke both physically and for his confidence level.
