Saban: Mark Ingram will 'be back soon'
The tailback injured his left knee in Monday's practice and had an arthroscopic procedure Tuesday morning.
Saban didn't shed much light Wednesday on Ingram's timetable for a return to the top-ranked Tide. But he says the injury is "not a serious thing" and "he'll be back soon."
Sophomore Trent Richardson will start in Ingram's place Saturday night against San Jose State.
Saban says Alabama won't have to change what it does offensively without Ingram.
He says it's important for the coaches and teammates to help Ingram keep a positive attitude during the rehab process.
