TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Mark Ingram said his bruised hip is fine and he will "most definitely" be ready for the Southeastern Conference championship game against No. 1 Florida.
No. 2 Alabama's tailback was injured in the fourth quarter against Auburn on Friday and played a limited role on the Crimson Tide's final winning drive in a 26-21 win. Coach Nick Saban said the Heisman Trophy contender would practice Monday but might be held out of contact drills.
Ingram was held to 30 yards on 16 carries against the Tigers, easily his roughest outing of the season.
He said Auburn defenders made it hard for him to get any space by putting eight or nine defenders near the line of scrimmage.
Ingram had an extra day to rest after the game and says his "body feels great."
