Saints don't divulge much about Mark Ingram's status


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Saints coach Sean Payton acknowledged Monday there is an issue with running back Mark Ingram, but he would not go into details and did not respond to the report Ingram will miss about a month due to a hand injury, according to The Times-Picayune.

"Nothing now," Payton said when asked Ingram's status. "I thought he ran really good yesterday. He played hard. We will evaluate where he is at. Nothing today with specifics to injuries with any of these guys."

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting Ingram has a broken hand, according to a source.


Report: Mark Ingram to miss a month due to hand injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram is expected to miss about a month due to a hand injury he suffered Week 2 at Cleveland, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Ingram is averaging 6.0 yards per carry and has totaled three rushing touchdowns through two games.

Mark Ingram efficient in limited carries against Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram certainly can't be blamed their defeat Sunday in Cleveland. He ran roughshod over the Browns.

Ingram finished with 83 yards on just 11 carries despite a first quarter in which he ran just once for six yards. He provided the team's first big play with a 26-yard jaunt in the second quarter, added a 15-yarder to aid in the drive for the go-ahead score in the third, and pounded over the goal line for a 1-yard score early in the fourth. He added three catches for 21 yards.

New Orleans hosts Minnesota in Week 3.


Mark Ingram overcomes sluggish start with two scores


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Running back Mark Ingram was expected to lead the Saints in carries Week 1 at Atlanta and did, but as part of a tandem that included Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson, his opportunities were still limited.

He didn't look like he'd do much with them in the first half, rushing for just 11 yards on four carries, but he made up for it in the second half, scoring on two powerful runs of 3 yards in the fourth quarter. It was the first two-touchdown game of his career.

The two touchdowns were preceded by a sideline tirade, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Ingram appeared to deny coach Sean Payton a congratulatory handshake after the first touchdown, though Payton said he didn't notice any tirade.

Ingram finished with 13 carries for 60 yards, nearly doubling up the Saints' second-leading rusher in both. Thomas had seven carries for 31 yards.

Ingram will aim for another big performance Week 2 at the Browns, who gave up 197 total yards (109 rushing, 88 receiving) to the Steelers' Le'Veon Bell in Week 1.


Mark Ingram could begin 2014 on right foot


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/2/2014) Coming off an impressive preseason in which he started three of the Saints' four games and ran 22 times for 156 yards (averaging 7.1 yards per carry), running back Mark Ingram has a chance to make an even bigger impression Week 1 at Atlanta.

The Falcons ranked 31st against the run last season, allowing 135.8 yards per game.

Ingram didn't do much in two games against them then, rushing nine times for 11 yards in the first and nine times for 32 yards in the second, but he picked up his pace later in the year, rushing 44 times for 249 yards in his final four games (including two playoff games) for an average of 5.7 yards per carry.

Beginning his fourth NFL season, Ingram is expected to play his biggest role yet for the Saints. He'll still split carries with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson, but with a strong matchup after a favorable preseason, he's not a bad third running back for Week 1. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him as a top-30 option in non-PPR leagues.


Mark Ingram 'healthy, fit and decisive'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram, a 2011 first-round pick, "is ready to put together his best NFL season," reports the team's website. "Ingram is healthy, fit and decisive as a runner."

Ingram has rushed for 148 yards on 21 carries (7.0 ypc) this preseason while catching two passes for 27 yards and scoring two touchdowns. "We saw a snapshot of the player Ingram could be at the end of last season," the website said. "He looks even better than he did then."


Mark Ingram rushes for 46 yards in preseason tuneup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram had another productive performance on the ground Saturday night against the Colts.

Ingram had a pair of 2-yard runs on the opening drive before bursting a 17-yard run. He took eight handoffs for 46 yards, averaging 5.8 yards per attempt. He has 21 carries for 148 yards and a touchdown through three preseason games.

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.

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."

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.

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

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.
