Despite returning to practice Friday, Mark Ingram (toe, questionable) was noncommittal when asked about his Week 13 availability.
"We'll see," said Ingram, adding that his Wednesday and Thursday absences from practice were due to "soreness" in the toe. Ingram said the toe "felt good" during Friday's practice. Still, it's conceivable his role is scaled back a bit on Sunday, with Tim Hightower shouldering more of the load. Reports on Ingram's toe will be worth monitoring closely into Sunday morning.

Mark Ingram (toe) returned to Saints practice Friday.

Ingram sat out Wednesday and Thursday's sessions. His Friday return is a strong indication Ingram will be good to go against the Lions, where he has earned borderline RB1 treatment by averaging over eight yards per carry over his last four games. Tim Hightower will stay heavily involved, and could even out-touch Ingram on Sunday. The Saints have been riding the "hot hand" in games.
Dec 2 - 2:16 PM

Mark Ingram (toe) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

He was present for the start of practice but didn't participate in any drills. Ingram will have to practice in at least some capacity Friday to have a realistic chance of playing this week. Tim Hightower would handle most of the backfield work if Ingram can't get cleared for Sunday's game against Detroit. Ingram is coming off a two-touchdown, 167-yard performance against Los Angeles in Week 12.
Dec 1 - 3:17 PM

Mark Ingram (toe) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Ingram rushed for 146 yards on Sunday and didn't seem to be hurt. It's possible the Saints are just giving him a maintenance day. After going through a little bit of a rough stretch last month, Ingram has reestablished himself as a weekly RB2 in fantasy. He has a favorable matchup against Detroit this week.
Nov 30 - 5:02 PM

Mark Ingram played 42-of-74 (57%) snaps Week 12 against the Rams.

Ingram had two fewer touches than Tim Hightower, but he out-snapped him 42-to-25. Minus his injury-shortened effort against the Panthers, Ingram's snap percentage has been on the rise over the last month. Back in the driver's seat in the Saints' backfield, Ingram will be an upside RB2 this week against the Lions.
Nov 28 - 9:11 AM

Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 146 yards and one touchdown while securing one-of-two targets for 21 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Saints' Week 12 win over the Rams.

Just 10 days removed from a concussion, Ingram faced zero resistance on Sunday. He set the tone by breaking a slew of tackles for an 18-yard gain on his first carry of the afternoon. Later in the half, he scored a 10-yard touchdown on a fourth-down conversion. He only had one man to beat after taking the toss from Drew Brees in the backfield. Ingram embarrassed the Rams again on 61-yard burst in the third quarter. He found the end zone again three plays later, this time on a 21-yard screen pass on third-and-long. After enduring some lean weeks early in the year, Ingram has again solidified himself as a weekly RB2 in fantasy. He gets the Lions at home in Week 13.
Nov 27 - 4:35 PM

Mark Ingram (concussion) is active for Week 12 against the Rams.

Terron Armstead (knee), Travaris Cadet (toe), Senio Kelemete (triceps), Tim Lelito (calf) and David Onyemata (knee) are also active. Ingram had been questionable with a concussion but it appears he was able to pass the league's protocol. LB Sam Barrington CB De’Vante Harris, OT Tony Hills, WR Jake Lampman, RB Daniel Lasco, RB Marcus Murphy and OG Landon Turner round out the Saints' Week 12 inactives.
Nov 27 - 11:57 AM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Mark Ingram (concussion, questionable) will play in Sunday's Week 12 game against the Rams.

Ingram suffered a concussion against Carolina in Week 11, but had 10 days to recover. He was able to get in a limited week of practice. Ingram has been sharing work with Tim Hightower over the last several weeks. He'll be a back-end RB2 for Week 12.
Nov 27 - 8:38 AM

Mark Ingram (concussion) is questionable for Week 12 against the Rams.

He practiced all week but still hasn't officially passed the concussion protocol. Tim Hightower would draw the start if Ingram isn't cleared by Sunday. Ingram will be a borderline RB2 if he plays this week.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Los Angeles’ defensive line has been excellent at stopping the run this season. Football Outsiders ranks them 1st in adjusted line yards per carry (3.11). Plus, Ingram will be stuck in a timeshare with Hightower. Targeting the Saints passing game is a better way to get exposure on their offense. Drew Brees will pick on corner E.J. Gaines, who has a 38.2 grade from Pro Football Focus this season, the third worst score in the league. Michael Thomas will draw Gaines on over half of his routes, while Brandin Cooks will have tougher matchups with Trumaine Johnson (79 PFF grade) and Lamarcus Joyner (81.6) on 74% of his routes. Thomas provides a better path to their offense than Ingram.
Nov 25 - 4:40 PM

Mark Ingram (concussion) practiced for the second straight day on Thursday.

Ingram has yet to receive official clearance, but is expected to suit up against the Rams. We should know Ingram's Week 12 status by Friday afternoon. He'll be on the RB2/3 borderline if he plays.
Nov 24 - 3:05 PM

Updating an earlier report, Mark Ingram said he is still in the league's concussion protocol.

Ingram said he hasn't officially been cleared yet but insisted he'll be good to go Sunday against the Rams. He was knocked out for a few seconds in last week's loss to Carolina but resumed practicing on Wednesday and is no longer feeling any effects. Assuming he passes the protocol before Sunday, Ingram will be in the RB2 mix against Los Angeles.
Nov 23 - 5:13 PM

Mark Ingram (concussion) will practice Wednesday.

According to ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett, Ingram is out of the league's concussion protocol after getting laid out in last Thursday night's loss to the Panthers. He'll be an RB2 in a tough home draw against the Rams this week.
Nov 23 - 9:52 AM

Mark Ingram is in the league's concussion protocol.

It's confirmation of what we saw Thursday night when Ingram took a big hit from Panthers S Kurt Coleman. Both teams were hit hard by injuries in this one. Ingram will have 10 days to clear the cobwebs before Week 12.
Nov 18 - 9:46 AM

Mark Ingram was forced from Thursday's game against the Panthers after taking a hit to the head.

He's being evaluated for a concussion. Finishing a big run, Ingram rammed his helmet directly into Kurt Coleman's knee. He briefly laid motionless as players frantically signaled for the trainer. Ingram actually made it off the field under his own power in relatively quick fashion, and seemed with it on the sideline. He was not happy as a trainer escorted him to the locker room. It appears his night is through. Ingram had seven carries for 28 yards, and three receptions for 47 additional yards.
Nov 17 - 10:38 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 11 times for 50 yards in the Saints' Week 10 loss to the Broncos, adding two receptions for 13 yards.

Ingram got the start, but remained in an even timeshare with Tim Hightower. Ingram out-touched Hightower just 13-10, and out-gained him 63-55. The snaps were roughly even. Ingram appeared to tweak his thigh at one point, but missed little time, and was never announced with an injury. With Hightower not going away, Ingram will be a flimsy RB2 for Thursday's short-week matchup with the Panthers' top-notch run defense.
