Mark Ingram: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Ingram was limited by a minor foot injury during Thursday's OTA's, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Coach Sean Payton downplayed the issue and emphasized that Ingram has been participating when possible and is doing well. It doesn't look to be anything that will linger too long into the summer for Ingram.
Ingram agreed to a four-year contract with the Saints on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Scheffer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ingram was set to become a free agent Tuesday, but this deal will keep him in New Orleans with the team that drafted him. Ingram led the Saints with 226 carries and 964 rushing yards last season and is poised to be the team's primary running back for the foreseeable future.
Ingram had 14 carries for 57 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as two catches on three targets for four receiving yards during Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Even with Khiry Robinson (forearm) back in the fold, Ingram is unlikely to yield much, if any, reps out of New Orleans' backfield. Ingram will aim to exploit a Carolina defense that has surrendered 136 total yards per game and 14 touchdowns to running backs this season.

Ingram (ankle/toe) practiced in a limited basis Wednesday, the Saints' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ingram's previous limited practice occurred following a 27-carry, 120-yard performance against the 49ers in Week 10, which is understandable considering the hard-hitting affair that he endured. After splitting running back reps with Pierre Thomas in Week 12, Ingram again dominated the Saints' ground game this past Sunday in Pittsburgh, rushing 23 times for 122 yards. As long as Ingram handles the bulk of the RB workload, the occasional capped practice can be expected, but owners should continue to watch his status closely to make sure he's poised for active status once game day arrives.

2014

After two quiet seasons that had the football world questioning Ingram's ability to live up to his 2011 first-round selection, he looked great in limited action last year despite missing five weeks to a toe injury, posting a sparkling 4.9 YPC. Ingram's much harder to bring down than his 5-9, 215-pound frame would imply, as the hard-running back posted the NFL's second-highest broken tackle rate, shedding 15 defenders in just 85 touches – a rate even higher than that of Marshawn Lynch, who led the league in broken tackles. The two biggest marks against Ingram are questions about his durability – he's had two knee surgeries and hasn't had a 200-carry season since his Heisman-winning 2009 at Alabama – and the fact that he's near-totally uninvolved in the Saints' pass game. However, Darren Sproles and his 71 catches were dealt to the Eagles in the offseason, and Pierre Thomas can't account for all that excess. That could mean that Ingram – a decent receiver out of the backfield in college – sees more passing work than in past years. Further, he has a very real chance to cut into Pierre Thomas's work on early downs. Now that he's finally healthy and well removed from his surgeries, this could be Ingram's time to shine.

2013

Ingram got off to a slow start in his second season, perhaps the result of an arthroscopic knee procedure he had in May, 2012, but the physical, 5-9, 215-pound back regained the lead role late in the year and closed with 4.2 YPC and four touchdowns over his final seven games. Moreover, after missing six games as a rookie, the former Heisman trophy winner played a full 16-game slate last season. Only 23, Ingram could still emerge as a workhorse should the Saints ever move away from a committee backfield. Oddly, for the second year in a row, Ingram saw far fewer snaps than Darren Sproles or Pierre Thomas, yet received more carries than either and led the team in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. In addition to sharing touches, Ingram's other problem is the Saints' penchant for passing in the red zone. They ranked ninth with 142 red-zone plays, but 27th with just 44 red-zone rushes. Until his committee situation in a pass-first offense changes, Ingram's ceiling will be modest.

2012

Ingram had a disappointing rookie campaign, totaling just 520 yards while missing six games due to injuries. Curiously, he received the same amount of goal-line carries (three) as Darren Sproles. Despite seeing 181 fewer snaps than Pierre Thomas and 282 fewer than Sproles, Ingram was given more rushing attempts than both, so he was utilized heavily when on the field. Ingram’s year ended prematurely when he had surgery to repair a turf toe injury, and discouragingly, he also underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in May, the second time in three years his left knee has been repaired. It wasn’t major surgery and is expected to keep him out only six weeks, but Ingram might not be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp. Another variable is how New Orleans doles out carries with Sean Payton suspended for 2012. If the team ditches its past committee approach, and Ingram emerges as the lead back in such a potent offense, big production could follow.

2011

The Saints traded up to draft Ingram with the No. 28 pick, and as a result, he looks like the favorite to lead the team in carries in 2011. After winning the Heisman trophy in 2009, Ingram battled injuries during his junior season last year, though he still managed to total 14 touchdowns on limited carries in 10 games. Not overly fast or super athletic, Ingram is a hard runner often compared to Emmitt Smith. Of course, expecting similar production would be foolish, even in the league’s No. 1 offense for two of the last three years. While the Saints should provide plenty of scoring opportunities, trusting coach Sean Payton is another thing, as he’s unpredictable when it comes to distributing carries. Pierre Thomas seemingly can’t stay healthy, but he’s a more than capable back when on the field, and last year’s team rushing leader Chris Ivory will also be in the mix. Another committee could easily emerge, but if Ingram somehow becomes a feature back in this offense (he only averaged 15.9 carries per game in college), there’s a lot of upside. There’s some concern about the degenerative arthritis in Ingram’s knee, but Dr. James Andrews recently gave him a full clean bill of health.
