Cornelius Ingram was back on the field for the final day of Eagles rookie camp, wearing a black elastic sleeve on his bruised left knee but otherwise showing no ill effects from Wednesday's collision with safety Rashad Baker.
"I felt good after treatment, so I definitely wanted to go out and do something," said Ingram, a tight end who has looked like a fifth-round find in the early going. Ingram dropped in the draft because he missed last season following left ACL surgery. "The swelling went down a lot. I just wanted to come out and be with the team again ... At the beginning of practice, it was a little stiff, but once I started to sweat, we got going a lot more, it became more comfortable.
"I'll be honest, I was a little scared (to get hit in the same knee he had just finished rehabbing), but once I got up, the pain started to ease away a little bit. I went to the doctor (Thursday) morning and everything looked fine, so I'm out here today running around."
The Eagles return to NovaCare Tuesday, when full-team OTAs (otherwise known as minicamp) begin that will carry through the following week. Then the team breaks until training camp commences at Lehigh July 26.
