Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed Mark Ingram is expected to report for mandatory minicamp.
Although eligible to participate, the suspended running back is skipping voluntary OTAs. He's unhappy with his contract situation. He's heading into the final year of his deal. Ingram's ban and Alvin Kamara's emergence have made a summer extension extremely unlikely for the eighth-year pro. May 24 - 1:30 PM

Although suspended Saints RB Mark Ingram is eligible to participate in the team's offseason program, he is not expected to report before mandatory minicamp.

"He and I spoke, so it wasn't a surprise to us that he's not here," coach Sean Payton said of Ingram's recent absence. "I don't agree with it. But it is optional, and that's his choice." Ingram is apparently upset at his lack of a contract extension — 2018 is the final year of his deal — but he's not about to get one, both because of his ban and Alvin Kamara's electric rookie season. Headed into his eighth year in the league, Ingram is still only 28.

Updating a previous item, suspended RB Mark Ingram's appeal has already been heard and denied by the NFL.

There was apparently some confusion on this Wednesday morning when Ingram's agent released a statement, saying they planned to appeal the four-game PEDs ban. That's already been done, which is why the league announced the suspension on Tuesday. Ingram will be sidelined Weeks 1-4 (vs. TB, vs. CLE, at ATL, at NYG), leaving Alvin Kamara locked into RB1 duties.
May 9 - 12:53 PM

Mark Ingram is appealing his four-game PEDs suspension.

In a statement, Ingram's agent said his client had a "proper use exemption" for the substance which Ingram tested positive. "At the end of the 2017 season, as a result of a NFL mandated random drug test, Mark tested positive for a substance that was not a performance enhancing substance, nor an illegal substance, but a substance in fact permissible with the proper use exemption with the NFL," Ingram's agent said. A decision from an arbitrator is due by May 16.
May 9 - 10:49 AM

NFL suspended Saints RB Mark Ingram four games for violating the league's PED policy.

This one comes out of nowhere, though you could say that about most PED bans. Headed into his eighth season in the league, Ingram has never before been suspended. The Saints don't go on bye until Week 6, so Ingram will be eligible to return in Week 5. Ingram has battled the injury bug at times during his career, but he appeared in all 16 games each of the past two seasons. His absence will leave a huge opening for all-world young runner Alvin Kamara to command an even bigger role. Kamara's early 2018 ADP is already that of a mid-first rounder. It's the worst possible start to Ingram's contract year.
May 8 - 4:04 PM

Mark Ingram has switched agents.

After being represented for a number of years by Joel Segal of Lagardere Sports and Entertainment, Ingram is now with Paul Bobbitt and David Jones of VIP Sports Management. The 28-year-old broke out for career-highs in both rushing yards (1,124) and touchdowns (12) last season while splitting backfield work with Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara. Ingram's contract expires after 2018.
Apr 17 - 2:27 PM

Mark Ingram managed just 25 yards on 10 carries while catching his only target for a three-yard gain Sunday in the Saints’ Divisional Round loss to the Vikings.

Ingram never got anything going on Sunday, which was probably to be expected against Minnesota's top-tier run defense. It didn't help that New Orleans spent most of the day playing from behind and essentially abandoned the running game altogether after halftime. Ingram limped to the finish line, ending the year on a three-game touchdown drought while struggling to just 2.56 yards per carry during that span. It's not the finish Ingram was hoping for, but this was still by far his best season as the 28-year-old set career-highs in both rushing yards (1,124) and touchdowns (12). Even with Alvin Kamara playing a major role, Ingram should be in the RB1 conversation in 2018.
Jan 14 - 9:45 PM

Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 22 yards and turned his only target into 13 yards in the Saints' Wild Card win over the Panthers.

Expected to ride the running game by everyone, the Saints dialed back the clock with a dominant performance from Drew Brees. Unfortunately for people who were counting on Ingram in DFS, that game-plan left him with few opportunities. He could not do much with the ones he did get, and he was vultured on the one-yard line by Zach Line late in the second quarter before watching Alvin Kamara score a short one in the fourth. With the Vikings up next, the road will not get any easier.
Jan 7 - 8:35 PM

Mark Ingram's contract will not be voided after failing to make the All-Pro team.

Ingram had a clause in his contract that would have voided the final year of his deal had he made the All-Pro team. Instead his teammate, Alvin Kamara, nabbed the final All-Pro spot at running back. Ingram will earn $4 million next season before hitting the open market in 2019. Despite the All-Pro snub, the seventh-year still finished with career-highs in both rushing yards (1,124) and touchdowns (12) during the regular season and will be a strong DFS play against Carolina this weekend.
Jan 5 - 3:35 PM

Mark Ingram managed 35 yards on 13 carries and caught 4-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Saints' Week 17 loss to the Bucs.

The Saints managed just 3.5 yards per carry as a team against a Bucs defense that came to play after it was announced coach Dirk Koetter would return for the 2018 season. Ingram's Week 18 matchup will be one of the toughest on the slate against a stout Panthers run defense in the Wild Card Round.

Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 16 win over the Falcons.

He added 22 yards on three catches. It was a quiet first half for Ingram, who finished with just 17 yards rushing on seven carries. He broke out after the break, however, getting loose for a 26-yard rushing score late in the third quarter to give the Saints a 17-point lead. He did not do much after that, but the run saved what could have been a bad fantasy day. Ingram will finish the regular season with a good matchup against the Bucs.

Mark Ingram caught 5-of-6 targets for 77 yards and rushed 12 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' Week 15 win over the Jets.

Ingram started his day with a 54-yard gain on a screen pass – it probably should have been a 64-yard touchdown – and already had 80 yards on four catches and a short rushing touchdown by the end of the first quarter. The offense surprisingly struggled for most of the rest of the game, but Ingram was able to get loose for a 50-yard touchdown with less than two minutes left to ice the win. Ingram topped both 1,000 rushing yards and 10 rushing scores for the season in this game. He will remain a must-start option next week against the Falcons.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 04:55:00 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 12 times for 49 yards in the Saints' Week 14 loss to the Falcons, adding four catches for 43 additional yards.

Although Ingram was gutting out a toe injury, it's fair to say he had a disappointing night after Alvin Kamara departed on the opening drive with a concussion. Ingram didn't appear to be noticeably hobbled, though he was in a good deal of pain after banging his foot on the turf late in the fourth quarter. He remained down for a few moments, but quickly checked back in. He's a man who could use the 10 days rest between now and next week's game with the Jets. Regardless of Kamara's health for that one, Ingram will remain a top-12 option.

Mark Ingram (toe) is active for Week 14 against the Falcons.

It appears Ingram's missed practice time was mostly about maintenance on a short week. Alvin Kamara is the preferred RB1, but Ingram should be treated as a top-eight option for the first week of the fantasy playoffs. Inactive for the Saints are G/T Andrus Peat, S Rafael Bush, RB Jonathan Williams, TE Garrett Griffin, C Cameron Tom, WR Austin Carr and DE Al-Quadin Muhammad as inactive.
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 07:03:00 PM

ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini reports Mark Ingram's toe injury is "not a big issue," and he will be "good to go" against the Falcons on Thursday.

Quoting coach Sean Payton, Russini said Ingram's missed practices were mostly a function of it being a short week for the Saints. It appears Ingram will not only play, but be ready for his usual role. Alvin Kamara is the preferred RB1, but Ingram is firmly in the top eight for Week 14.
