Mark Ingram's suspension means Browns will miss facing Saints RB

  • Saints edge Patriots in NFL Media's top 10 offense rankings

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming NFL season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to multiple reports. If Ingram's suspension remains intact, the seven-year veteran would miss home outings with the Buccaneers and Browns and road games with the Falcons and Giants.

Ingram will be eligible to participate in all offseason practices and preseason games. But with Ingram out for the first four games, the depth chart at the position all of a sudden has become much more important. With Ingram out for four weeks, that means that brunt of the rushing load will likely fall on Alvin Kamara, who was named the NFL's 2017 Offensive Rookie of the Year last season. He had his first career 1,000-yard season in 2016 and followed that up with another one in 2017. He also caught 58 passes for 416 yards.

Kamara took on a slightly larger share of the workload down the stretch last season - which could remain the norm even when Ingram returns. The Saints also have Trey Edmunds, Jonathan Williams and Daniel Lasco in the backfield to go along with former Louisiana Tech running back Boston Scott, who was selected in the sixth round of this year's draft. So that competition will be worth monitoring this summer.


The former Heisman Trophy victor was a first-round draft pick in 2011.

New Orleans' ground game ranked fifth in the NFL with an average of 129.4 yards per game last season while leading the league with 23 rushing touchdowns and an average of 4.7 yards per carry.
