Mark Ingram (knee injury) practices
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama tailback Mark Ingram practiced Monday, wearing a brace on his left knee.
The Heisman Trophy winner appears on track to return against Duke after missing the first two games with a knee injury. The top-ranked Crimson Tide are also set to get defensive end Marcell Dareus back from a two-game suspension.
Ingram worked some last Thursday, but the coaches decided he didn't log enough practice time to risk playing for the top-ranked Tide against Penn State.
He had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee five days before the opener against San Jose State.
