Mark Ingram expected to catch more passes


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram caught a 23-yard touchdown pass Friday against the Titans, his first receiving score in the NFL. Ingram made a couple guys miss on his way to the end zone.

According to ESPN.com, Ingram stayed on the field during Monday's two-minute drill in practice, catching a pair of passes from Drew Brees. While Pierre Thomas is expected to be the main pass-catching back for New Orleans, Ingram should play a more versatile role than he has in his career, the website said.

"I know I'm an all-purpose back, a complete back," said Ingram, who has 24 receptions in his first three seasons. "I can do everything."


Mark Ingram finds the end zone in second straight exhibition game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram found the end zone again Friday night against the Titans in preseason play.

Ingram caught a 23-yard pass from Ryan Griffin for a touchdown in the second quarter, his lone catch and target of the night. He finished the game with five carries for a team-high 19 yards.

Mark Ingram, Khiry Robinson pulling away from Pierre Thomas


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Saints running backs Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson used the preseason opener in St. Louis to keep pulling away from Pierre Thomas, who did not make the trip for unspecified reasons, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Thomas was reportedly on the trading block this offseason, he's listed third on the unofficial depth chart, and he does not take snaps with the starters in walkthroughs, the paper said.

Ingram ran eight times for 83 yards and a touchdown against the Rams. Robinson carried five times for 23 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 16 yards.


Mark Ingram shines in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Mark Ingram, who is in a contract year, looked like the running back that won the Heisman Trophy and national championship for Alabama during the Saints' first preseason game Friday night against St. Louis.

With Pierre Thomas sidelined, Ingram got the start and shouldered the load in the first half. He ripped a 22-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He rushed for a team-high 83 yards and a touchdown on eight carries, averaging 10.4 yards per attempt. He caught his only targeted pass for a gain of 4 yards.

'Pretty even workload' expected for Saints' top 3 backs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Saints have at least a three-headed monster at running back, with Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson expected to receive significant snaps. Then there's pass-catching back Travaris Cadet. 

ESPN's Saints reporter, Mike Triplett, expects "a pretty even workload between the Saints' top three running backs, with Thomas playing more of the nickel/third-down role now that Darren Sproles has been traded away. But it's always possible that the Saints could stick with the hot hand as the season goes along."


Mark Ingram working primarily with first team


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram spent most of Saturday's practice working with the first team, and coach Sean Payton referred to him as "one of our starters," reports the New Orleans Times Picayune. Pierre Thomas worked a lot with the reserves, the paper said.

Ingram is "a guy that we felt played very well in the last half of the season," Payton said. "It's a position where we obviously carry depth, because it's a position that gets nicked up in our game. (Ingram) is smart. He's tough. He runs with good pad level. So far, he's doing well."

Ingram will try to separate himself in a crowded backfield that includes Thomas, Khiry Robinson and Travaris Cadet.


Saints decision on Mark Ingram based on money


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) Even though the Saints declined the fifth-year option on running back Mark Ingram for the 2015 season, general manager Mickey Loomis still has high expectations for him this year, reports ESPN.

The decision not to pick up the option was purely based on money. It would have cost the Saints $5.2 million for the 2015 season, which is more than the going rate for running backs these days.

"That’s a financial decision: the amount of the tender versus what the market value for running backs has been," Loomis said. "I like Mark. I talked to Mark before we made that decision. I told him it wasn't reflective on what we thought about him. It was just a business decision, a financial decision. We have high expectations for him, and I hope he has a great year."


La Canfora: Saints won't pick up Mark Ingram's option


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/29/2014) CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that the Saints "do not intend" to pick up the fifth-year option on running back Mark Ingram, making him a free agent after this season. The option would have cost the team a reported $5.2 million for 2015. 

Saints facing deadline on Mark Ingram


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) The Saints have until May 3 to pick up the fifth-year option on running back Mark Ingram. The option would cost the team about $5.2 million in base salary for 2015.

"I'm not sure if they will pick up the fifth-year option," Ingram told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "I'm just working one day at a time and I'm just glad I'm on a team that's a championship contender."


Mark Ingram wants to prove he's an every-down back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram said he's shocked by the impending release of Darren Sproles and possible trade of Pierre Thomas, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Ingram called the situation "a double-edged sword" because it appears he's headed for a bigger role.

"It's an exciting time in my career," Ingram told the paper. "I just want to take advantage of my situation and the opportunity that's presenting itself. Just want to prove to the organization that I can be the back they wanted, an every-down back, type of playmaker that they need.

"I'm excited about my situation. It's unfortunate to see a lot of guys go, but I'm excited about my opportunity that I have coming up."

Ingram averaged a career-high 4.9 yards per carry last season.


Mark Ingram goes 'one and out' against Seahawks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram appeared destined for a big game Saturday against Seattle. Then came the last three quarters.

Ingram rushed for 30 yards on his first three attempts and finished the first quarter with 34 yards on four carries. But he was stymied thereafter and finished with just 49 yards on 10 tries. He also had the lone turnover of the game, a second-quarter fumble that killed a New Orleans drive.


Mark Ingram surging at season's end


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram is averaging 5.8 yards per carry since the midway point of the season, with 433 yards and two touchdowns on 75 carries. He called his performance against the Eagles -- 18 carries, 97 yards and a score -- the best of his career.

Coach Sean Payton said Ingram has been “running real well."

“I liked his ball security the other night," Payton told the team's website. "Those weren’t always easy yards. I’m pleased with how he’s playing. I think he’s had a handful of games now toward the latter part of the season where he’s been exceptional.”

Ingram got a heavy workload with Pierre Thomas (chest) sidelined. It's unclear whether Thomas will play Saturday at Seattle.


Saints' running game picking up at right time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2014) The Saints averaged 79.8 rushing yards per game over their first eight games. Over the final eight, they averaged 104.4. The running game continued to do its part in the playoff win in Philadelphia, producing 185 yards as Mark Ingram gained 97 yards on 18 carries and Khiry Robinson netted 45 yards on eight totes.

New Orleans played without leading rusher Pierre Thomas (chest).

“I love the fact that the coaches had the faith in me and the other backs to run the ball a lot in the game," Ingram told The Advocate.

The Saints likely will find it tougher to run against the Seahawks on Saturday. In Week 13 at Seattle, New Orleans gained 44 yards on 17 carries in a 34-7 loss.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Mark Ingram goes nowhere


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) Saints running back Mark Ingram ran eight times for 22 yards, a 2.8-yard average, in the loss at Seattle. Those meager rushing totals led the team.

Mark Ingram does little in winning effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) Saints running back Mark Ingram got a few more carries than normal in Week 12 against the Falcons Thursday, but he failed to break out in a 17-13 win.

Ingram carried the ball nine times, matching his second-highest total of the season. Unfortunately, he had a long carry of his 10 yards, and finished with 32 in the game.

Ingram rushed for 145 yards in Week 10, but has done little else this season. He heads into Week 13 against the Seahawks with 50 carries for 252 yards in six games.  


Mark Ingram has great Week 12 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) Saints running back Mark Ingram followed up his 14-carry, 145-yard performance in Week 10 with a step back to normalcy in Week 11 – carrying the ball six times for 25 yards. Ingram now has one game with 21 Fantasy points on the season, and four with two or fewer.

There is some hope in Week 12 for Ingram, however. The Falcons – his Thursday night opponent -- have been terrible against the run lately, allowing three opposing backs to rush for 145 or more yards over the last four games. While this would seem to make Pierre Thomas the attractive choice as a starter, Ingram could see some late-game garbage time, as the Falcons are also pretty weak against the pass, which is the Saints' specialty. If New Orleans jumps all over Atlanta early, chances are Ingram sees a decent enough amount of carries to have some degree of relevance.

Ingram shouldn't crack many standard league starting lineups, but a deep-league owner with an open spot might want to take a chance on the game getting out of control and Ingram seeing some touches come his way.

Five catch one for Saints in defeat of San Francisco


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Saints running back Mark Ingram ran for 25 yards on six carries and added a 4-yard catch to lead a group of minor contributors Sunday in a win over the 49ers.

Others that caught one pass were wideouts Kenny Stills (11 yards) and Nick Toon (8 yards), fullback Jed Collins (3 yards) and tight end Josh Hill, whose 3-yard snag provided the first score of the game. Collins added 3 yards rushing on two carries. 


Mark Ingram posts first 100-yard rushing game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2013) Saints running back Mark Ingram, an afterthought most of the season, broke out for 145 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in the rout of Dallas. Ingram averaged 10.4 yards per rush in posting his first career 100-yard rushing game.

Ingram, who added two catches for 15 yards, scored his first touchdown this season on a 4-yard run in the third quarter. His 34-yard run earlier in the drive fell one yard shy of his career long. Ingram ripped a demoralized Cowboys' defense with a punishing style he hasn't displayed often.

Ingram gets the 49ers in Week 12.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Saints running back Mark Ingram didn't make much of an impact in his return from injury Week 9 at N.Y. Jets. Ingram managed just 19 rushing yards on four carries, while failing to haul in his only target in the passing game.

Ingram had just two carries for 5 yards by halftime and his longest carry went 13 yards. He had missed the previous five games because of a toe injury.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Saints running back Mark Ingram made his return to the lineup Week 9 at N.Y. Jets after missing five games with a toe injury. Ingram's return meant Khiry Robinson was a healthy scratch.
