Next Level Scouting, Inc. is reporting that Florida senior tight end Cornelius Ingram will have an MRI on his left knee on Thursday morning to determine the extent of the injury he suffered during 1-on-1 drills during Tuesday's practice. Team doctors have initially diagnosed him with a strained left knee, according to one source, but the full extent of how badly he is hurt will not be known until the results of the MRI and when the swelling subsides.

Ingram declared for the NFL Draft following his junior season, but later changed his mind and decided to return for his final campaign in Gainesville. After coming to Florida as a quarterback, he found his niche as a tight end and had an excellent junior season with 34 receptions for 508 yards (14.9 yards per catch) and seven touchdowns on his way to earning second team All-SEC honors.

Ingram has been named to the 2008 John Mackey Watch list. His seven receiving touchdowns in 2007 tied him with Andre “Bubba” Caldwell for the team lead, and he is expected to be one of Tim Tebow’s favorite targets this season.
