Ingram out for the season



UPDATE: Bob Brookover of the Inquirer is reporting that the Eagles have signed undrafted rookie Rob Myers in the wake of Cornelius Ingram's injury.



Andy Reid had more bad injury news to share this afternoon. The Eagles head coach announced that rookie tight end Cornelius Ingram is out for the season with a torn ACL. The injury is to the same knee Ingram injured in his final year in college.

Reid said Ingram injured the knee during goal line drills on Tuesday. Ingram missed practice Wednesday with the injury, but participated (in light action) on Thursday before the team shut him down. He had an MRI exam this morning that revealed the tear.


“It’s a shame for the kid,” Reid said. “He’s a great kid, he’s worked hard.”


No date for surgery has been set yet, Reid said.


The loss of Ingram leaves the Birds with threadbare depth at tight end. Matt Schobel missed practice again today with a calf injury, leaving starter Brent Celek and undrafted rookie Eugene Bright as the only healthy players at the position.


The Eagles looked at a group of free agent tight ends this morning. Reid said the team will likely offer a contract to one of them, but had not yet decided which one to sign.
