When you play running back in the NFL, you’re going to get banged up.  Entering his sophmore season, Flint native and New Orleans Saints’ RB, Mark Ingram is a little banged up, and he’s trying to get better.  Check out the details on his latest knee surgery and what it means for him in the 2012 NFL season.

Mark Ingram is one of the best athletes to come out of the 810 in recent years, and hopefully his second knee surgery will help extend his NFL career.  The New Orleans Saints’ running back went under the knife this past Thursday, but the surgery wasn’t for a specific injury that Ingram sustained.  It was more so to remove scar tissue and any lessen any lingering pain from his first surgery, which he underwent during his junior year at Alabama.


Ingram should only be out for 6 weeks, and fully expects to be 100% by the start of NFL training camp.  The running back position in the NFL is one of the most brutal in football, and injuries are common place.  During his rookie year with the Saints, Ingram missed 6 games with turf toe.
