Cornelius Ingram tears ACL

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Philadelphia Eagles rookie tight end Cornelius Ingram has a torn ligament in his left knee and is likely out for the season.

The team said an MRI taken Saturday revealed the torn ACL sustained on Tuesday. The fifth-round pick missed his senior season at Florida after tearing the ACL in the same knee almost exactly a year ago.

"He's a great kid and his leg had been doing so well," coach Andy Reid said.

The Eagles signed undrafted rookie tight end Rob Myers to provide depth behind starter Brent Celek. Veteran Matt Schobel and undrafted rookie Eugene Bright are the other tight ends in camp.

Myers missed his senior season at Utah State after having surgery for turf toe. He signed with the New York Jets after the draft, but was released May 29.

Also, receiver DeSean Jackson hyperextended his knee during Saturday's practice. Reid said the injury was not serious.

Ingram was impressive in offseason workouts and the Eagles had high expectations for him.

"He was doing some good things," Reid said. "He was working his way in. The other guys just have to step up, that's all."

Ingram's injury is the latest setback for a team that reached the NFC championship game last year. Starting middle linebacker Stewart Bradley tore his ACL last Sunday, and right tackle Shawn Andrews still hasn't practiced because of a back injury.

i do..

im a really big fan of the guy and this is an extremely tough break for the kid, he was one of the higher rated tight ends coming up for this past draft before starting his senior season, and missed the season to injury..gets picked up late and gets put on a team where he is in a good situation to become the starter there, and this happens to him in his rookie campaign, meaning he will have missed at least 2 years of ever playing in a football game when he can come back..

that is just terrible

actually he was more of a 2nd or 3rd round talent so a lot of people should care. tough break for a good young player.

my first thought when i read the title was "oh damn not again"

Man I know how the torn ACL feels. Not fun. He should be walking in about 2 months with little pain. Bending down and putting pressure on the knee is a different story.

Well actually if he hadn't been injured his senior year of college he'd be the 1st or 2nd tight end to go in the draft. Some people just have no clue.
