Mark Ingram to miss Alabama's game after having knee procedure

Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram underwent an arthroscopic knee procedure Tuesday morning and will miss Alabama's season-opener Saturday against San Jose State.

"It was a situation where everyone involved thought it would be better to take care of now, so he would not have any issues with it later in the season," Coach Nick Saban said in a statement released by the team. "Mark had an arthroscopic procedure this morning with Dr. [Lyle] Cain and Dr. [James] Andrews and it was successful. We have full confidence in our medical staff and we know the doctors and athletic trainers will do an outstanding job in taking care of Mark and assisting him in his rehab. ... This is not an injury that will affect Mark's future ability to make a full recovery in a relatively short time frame."

Ingram hurt his knee late in Monday's practice.
