Knee procedure to keep Eagles TE Ingram out of next game

PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles second-year tight end Cornelius Ingram had a cyst in the back of his knee drained after undergoing an MRI exam for knee and calf pain.

Team officials said Ingram had the cyst drained Thursday after it was discovered one day earlier by an MRI on his surgically repaired left knee. Ingram has been hampered by discomfort in the knee and calf during training camp.

The Eagles selected Ingram in the fifth round of the 2009 draft. He missed his entire senior season at Florida because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, then sat out last year when he re-injured the knee.

Ingram will not travel with the Eagles for Friday's preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
