Next up for the flu: Mark Ingram

Just days after rushing for a career-high 150 yards against Virginia Tech, Mark Ingram became the latest Alabama player to come down with the flu.

Speaking on the SEC teleconference, coach Nick Saban just said it wasn’t much of a surprise since his roommate and backup quarterback Star Jackson was sick with it earlier in the week.

Both missed practice yesterday but Saban expects Jackson to return Wednesday and Ingram to be back for the game.
