Ingram Out for Season, Jackson Hurt

Jackson hurts knee and rookie Ingram tears ACL, again

The Eagles have had an injury cloud hanging over their training camp this summer.

On Saturday, DeSean Jackson, who has probably been the star of camp, hyperextended his right knee. But the Eagles don't believe it is serious. During the morning practice session in a full-speed drill, Donovan McNabb hit Brent Celek across the middle, but on the play, DeSean got tangled up with cornerback Asante Samuel.

He was carted back to the locker room. Jackson will have an MRI.

"He's all right," coach Andy Reid said. "They just banged knees. He'll be fine."

DeSean walked out of the camp facility. He looked okay. He says he's okay. Let's hope so.

The Eagles also found out Saturday that promising rookie tight end Cornelius Ingram tore his ACL again. He tore the same ACL this very same week last year before his senior season at Florida.

Ingram's injury happened on Tuesday in a goal line drill. He actually practiced on it a little bit Thursday. Saturday's MRI showed the ACL tear so his season is done again.

After Florida won their national title, Ingram was chosen to present President Obama with the Gator jersey, even though he'd missed the season. Tough, tough break again.

The Eagles quickly signed tight end Rob Myers who was let go by the Jets in May.

Ingram is the second player on the team to tear his ACL during training camp. Last Sunday, during Eagles Flight Night, linebacker Stewart Bradley went out for the season with the same injury. Lets hope there are no more injuries before camp breaks Wednesday.
