“Mark is doing extremely well,” Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said after practice Wednesday. “He didn’t have a lot of swelling, which is a good sign. That has a lot to do with how quickly he can come back.”
Saban wouldn’t guess how long last season’s Heisman Trophy winner will be out other than again confirming that he won’t play for top-ranked Alabama in Saturday’s 6 p.m. opener against San Jose State. Ingram has returned to meetings with the team but has not been present at practice the past two days.
