Cornelius Ingram Has Cyst Drained

New, comments

This is one of the grosser headlines I've written in a while. Probably since "Cowboys blow out Eagles again..." TE Cornelius Ingram had an MRI done last night and it revealed what was called "a significant Baker's cyst" in the back of left knee and calf. Today, he had the cyst drained. The team has announced that he won't travel to KC or play in the 3rd preseason game.

A quick search as to what a Baker's cyst was certainly didn't sound great for Ingram.

A Baker's cyst, also called a popliteal cyst, is usually the result of a problem with your knee joint, such as arthritis or a cartilage tear. Both conditions can cause your knee to produce too much fluid, which can lead to a Baker's cyst.

Presumably, an MRI would have revealed if there was further damage to the knee. Either way, it's just another in a long line of bad luck for someone who is by all accounts a really great guy and a promising talent.
