Mark Ingram (toe, knee, questionable) returned to a limited practice on Friday.
That puts him on track to play Sunday against Tampa Bay. Ingram has had some big weeks recently, but his usage remains somewhat of a guessing game. Last week he was out-snapped by Travaris Cadet. Ingram will be a risky RB2 against a Bucs' defense that has performed much better recently. Dec 9 - 3:12 PM

Mark Ingram (toe) was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

Ingram seems poised to play through his toe issue for the second straight game, but mid-week downgrades are always eye-catching. We wouldn't consider the matter settled. Ingram will probably suit up as a low-end RB2 against the Bucs, but owners need to keep checking his status.
Dec 8 - 4:18 PM

Mark Ingram (toe, knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Ingram had a minor setback with his toe injury last week. He likely won't get in much practice time but should play Sunday. Playing at less than 100 percent, Ingram is a risky RB2 against the Bucs.
Dec 7 - 5:25 PM

Mark Ingram rushed seven times for 37 yards in the Saints' Week 13 loss to the Lions, adding five receptions for 16 additional yards.

Ingram couldn't get any volume going in a game the Lions controlled from the opening whistle. Ingram also missed a series or two after tweaking his toe injury. He's undoubtedly going to miss more practice time this week. Provided he's healthy enough to suit up, Ingram will be a volatile RB2 against the Bucs in Week 14.
Dec 4 - 5:18 PM

Mark Ingram (toe) is active for Week 13 against the Lions.

Ingram seemed genuinely questionable for a time this week, but is ready to split work with Tim Hightower. Ingram absolutely tore it up in last week's romp over the Rams, but it's fair to wonder how often he'll get the ball at less than 100 percent. Our guess is that Hightower will probably win the touch war, making him the slightly better fantasy play. Ingram is on the RB2 borderline for Week 13. Inactive for the Saints are WR Jake Lampman, CB De'Vante Harris, RB Marcus Murphy, LT Terron Armstead, RB Daniel Lasco, OL Landon Turner and LB Sam Barrington.
Dec 4 - 11:39 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Mark Ingram (toe) is expected to play Week 13 against the Lions.

Ingram was non-committal about his availability on Friday, but he did say the toe "felt good" during Friday's practice. Still, he could be forced into a more limited role because of the injury. Even in a good matchup, Ingram is a risky RB2 play. Tim Hightower deserves a look in the FLEX.
Dec 4 - 8:17 AM

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.
Dec 2 - 2:52 PM

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. 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.
