Reigning Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram returned to practice for #1 Alabama this week, and head coach Nick Saban expects Ingram to be ready for the game against Duke on Saturday. Ingram missed the Crimson Tide’s first two games — wins over San Jose St. and Penn State — while recovering from knee surgery. He was hurt during practice back on August 30 and underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee the following day. Last year, Ingram set the school rushing record with 1,658 yards, whil also catching 32 passes for 334 yards and 20 total touchdowns in leading Alabama to an undefeated season and the national title. A unanimous First-Team All-American, Ingram became the first running back to capture the Heisman and national championship in the same season since Tony Dorsett with Pittsburgh in 1976. In his absence this year, the Tide have barely missed a beat with backup Trent Richardson.
