New Orleans Saints tailback Mark Ingram described his recent arthroscopic knee surgery as "as minor as it gets." And he said he will be 100 percent healthy by the time training camp starts.
The surgery was on Ingram's right knee, not the left knee that Ingram had injured during his college career at Alabama. Ingram said he was experiencing some soreness in the knee.
"Just something, needed to have it fixed and went in and got it done," Ingram said. "A minor knee surgery, a little scope. As minor as it gets."
Ingram is also recovering from a more more significant surgery earlier in the offseason to repair a tendon in his big toe - the injury that ended his rookie season early last year. Despite the two surgeries, he expects to be full speed by next month.
Darren Sproles is the RB to own in New Orleans, but Ingram has some upside given his current draft position in the middle rounds. Pierre Thomas rounds out the Saints' RBBC.
