Cornelius Ingram has cyst on back of his knee drained

The bad luck continues for Philadelphia Eagles tight end Cornelius Ingram.

He missed his rookie season last year after tearing the ACL in his left knee and now the twice-repaired knee is acting up again. The team announced this morning that following an MRI Wednesday night at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia, it was determined that Ingram had a “significant Baker’s cyst” in the back of the left knee and his calf muscle. This morning, Ingram had a procedure at Rothman Institute in Philadephia to drain the cyst. He’s been ruled out of Friday’s game at Kansas City.

Ingram has been trying to make a name for himself in practice but has been hobbled for some time before Wednesday’s MRI. With rookie Clay Harbor showing well, it’s putting pressure on Ingram, who the team has to consider a medical question mark at this point. How the cyst affects him moving forward remains to be seen, but there is just one preseason game after Friday.
