Mark Ingram (injured reserve) will have surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder Thursday.

Ingram originally suffered an AC sprain Week 10 against the Redskins, but he injured the same shoulder further last week against the Panthers and was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. He should be fully healthy for the start of OTAs. Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller will form a low-value committee with Ingram sidelined.

Saints placed RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Ingram played through his shoulder issue the last two weeks, but his workloads had been limited. He'll be shut down for the final month, ending his season at 1,174 total yards (4.6 YPC) and six touchdowns over 12 games. The Saints will move forward with a committee of C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower. Ingram should be fully healthy for the start of OTAs.

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports Mark Ingram is "dealing with a serious shoulder injury" that may end his season.

Ingram first popped up on the injury report Week 12 with the shoulder issue, but has been listed as probable the past two weeks. During those games, he's seen his workload scaled back a bit, and we may have a reason now. With Khiry Robinson (leg) already done for the year, would be left with C.J. Spiller, Tim Hightower, and KR-type Marcus Murphy at running back if Ingram has to hit the shelf. It'd be awful timing for fantasy owners. Ingram is currently the overall RB3 and has been as consistent as they come much of the year.

Mark Ingram rushed 12 times for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 13 loss to the Panthers, adding four receptions for 23 additional yards.

The Saints couldn't commit to Ingram on the ground in an old-fashioned shootout, but he managed to find the end zone for the first time in five games. There was a low moment when Ingram lost a soft fumble, but the Saints managed to recover. Ingram was also flagged for a personal foul on an over-the-top celebration. With four games to go, Ingram is on pace for 1,025 yards rushing and eight total touchdowns. The 1,000-yard campaign would be his first ever. Ingram will be more RB2 than RB1 against the Bucs in Week 14.

Mark Ingram (shoulder) is probable for Week 13.

His status was never in doubt. Ingram is a top-12 play against the Panthers.

Mark Ingram (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Ingram played through the issue last week. Ingram has been getting bafflingly few carries the past two weeks, but has kept his floor afloat with receptions. He's on the RB1/2 borderline for Week 13.
Thu, Dec 3, 2015 06:03:00 PM

Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 52 yards in New Orleans' Week 12 loss to the Texans, adding six receptions for 45 additional yards.

Ingram averaged nearly six yards per carry for the second straight game, but just like in Week 10, was bafflingly held below 10 totes. It made no sense on a day where Drew Brees found himself stymied from the opening whistle. Ingram is averaging 4.62 yards per carry on the year, but his workloads are making him a dicey RB1. He has a brutal Week 13 matchup in the Panthers. He'll be an RB2 for that one.

Mark Ingram (shoulder) is listed as probable for Week 12 against the Texans.

He's been limited at practice but there was never much concern about his status. Ingram has averaged 18.5 touches per game this year. He's an RB1 on volume alone.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 04:19:00 PM

Mark Ingram (shoulder) was limited in Thursday's practice.

There is no known concern about Ingram's Week 12 availability. He should be in store for a heavy workload Sunday against Houston's mediocre run defense.
Thu, Nov 26, 2015 03:11:00 PM

Mark Ingram (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday’s practice.

It’s the same injury Ingram played through in Week 10. He’s not in any danger of missing Sunday’s matchup with Houston. Ingram's a top-12 running back play.
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 06:15:00 PM

Mark Ingram rushed five times for 77 yards and caught three passes for 13 yards in the Saints' Week 10 loss to Washington.

Ingram had a 70-yard run that set up a Brandin Cooks touchdown on the first drive. He was a non-factor for the rest of the game, with C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower both playing over him in the second half. Ingram has at least 80 total yards in four straight games. The Saints are on their bye in Week 11.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 05:04:00 PM

Mark Ingram had 21 carries for 52 yards and caught 4-of-5 passes for 42 yards in the Saints' Week 9 loss to the Titans.

Ingram failed to convert on both his goal-line carries and was vultured by Drew Brees on a QB Sneak. His total yards managed to salvage his game, but it's a letdown against one of the worst run defenses in the league. With Khiry Robinson on I.R. and C.J. Spiller not a pass-game factor, Ingram will remain an RB1 for Week 10 against Washington.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 05:16:00 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 16 times for 80 yards in New Orleans' Week 8 win over the Giants, adding four catches for 39 additional yards.

Ingram's angry Week 7 running carried over against the G-Men, but he was an afterthought with Drew Brees waging war through the air. Nevertheless, whether it's via yards from scrimmage or touchdowns, Ingram has managed to get the job done in just about every game this season. With half the year in the books, Ingram is on pace for 1,060 rushing yards, another 548 yards through the air and 10 total touchdowns. He's an every-week RB1.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 06:07:00 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 14 times for 143 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 7 win over the Colts, adding two catches for five yards.

It was a strange day for Ingram, who appeared to be semi-benched in the first quarter, and had two scores vultured by Khiry Robinson. He also seemed to tweak something late, but didn't receive any treatment on the sideline. In between, he dominated, notching carries of 20, 11, 44, 35, 17 and 10 yards. The effort upped his YPC from 3.5 to 4.4 Ingram is locked in as an RB1 ahead of next week's game against the Giants.
