Mark Ingram RB NO 22 Days

Ingram (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Ingram disappointed with just 11 carries for 27 yards against Baltimore last week, with the Saints going pass-heavy and giving a lot of snaps to passing-down back Pierre Thomas as a result. The Pittsburgh defense is more friendly to the run than Baltimore's, so Ingram would disappoint a lot of owners if he doesn't bounce back a bit this week.

Ingram (shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday, the Saints' official site reports.

Ingram's four-game reign as the unquestioned running back in New Orleans came to an end this past Monday. With a soft Ravens secondary in front of them, the Saints opted to air it out, limiting Ingram to 11 carries for 27 yards and two receptions for 15 yards. The outing included the return of fellow back Pierre Thomas, who handled a similar workload (five runs for 19 yards and six catches for 37 yards). In Week 13, the Saints may follow a similar game plan against a Steelers defense that's middle of the pack against the pass and Top 10 versus the run. If so, Ingram's value will continue to dwindle.

Ingram had 11 carries for 27 yards and two receptions for 15 yards in Monday's 34-27 loss to the Ravens.

Pierre Thomas returned from a shoulder injury to gain 19 yards on five carries and 37 yards on six receptions. Ingram unsurprisingly struggled, as the matchup with Baltimore's tough front seven favored Drew Brees and the passing game over Ingram's power running. Further taking away from Ingram's cause, the Saints went down by two scores early in the fourth quarter. Next week's road matchup with the Steelers should be more amenable to the New Orleans rushing attack, for which Ingram is still the centerpiece.

Ingram (shoulder) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Ravens, the Saints' official site reports.

Ingram is in line to head the Saints' Week 12 rushing attack and thus merits lineup consideration, though he could lose some touches Monday due to the return of Pierre Thomas, particularly in the passing game.

Ingram (shoulder) is probable for Monday's game.

He was a full participant in Saturday's practice and with Khiry Robinson (forearm) out, Ingram should continue to see most of the carries for the Saints. Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder) should factor into the passing game against the Ravens, but Ingram remains the back to own in the Saints' backfield.

Ingram (shoulder) practiced fully Thursday,the Saints' official site reports.

As the only viable running back for the Saints of late, Ingram has turned 104 carries into 459 yards and three touchdowns over the last four games. one the RBs absent during that span, Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder), participated on a limited basis Thursday, implying that his return to action is nigh. Nevertheless, Ingram is the top dog in New Orleans until further notice.

Ingram (shoulder) had 23 carries for 67 rushing yards and a team-high seven catches on seven targets for 30 receiving yards Sunday against the Bengals.

Ingram continues to be heavily-used in the Saints' offense, posting over 20 carries for the fourth consecutive game. His 67 rushing yards ended his three-game streak with at least 100 yards on the ground, though his seven receptions certainly helped make up for it in PPR formats. With Pierre Thomas (shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (arm) still sidelined, Ingram will likely continue to get a vast majority of the backfield touches in Week 12 against the Ravens, though it won't be an easy matchup, as the Ravens are allowing the sixth-fewest rushing yards per game this season.

Ingram (shoulder) is active for Sunday's contest against the Bengals, the Saints' official site reports.

In a backfield without the services of Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder), Khiry Robinson (arm), and Edwin Baker (concussion), Ingram will again power the Saints' ground game versus a Cincinnati run defense that has been particularly porous this season, allowing 4.6 YPC and 12 total touchdowns to running backs across nine outings.

Ingram (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's game against Cincinnati.

Ingram is ready to go for Sunday, and he'll probably get all the work he can handle with all of Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder), Khiry Robinson (arm) and Edwin Baker (concussion) out against the Bengals. Ingram is a clear RB1 option Sunday.

Ingram (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Ingram is repeating last week's practice schedule, but it didn't stop him from racking up 120 yards on 27 carries and 19 additional yards on three receptions during Sunday's loss to the 49ers. A similar regimen may be in store this week as well, but the continued absences of Pierre Thomas (shoulder/rib) and Khiry Robinson (arm) ensure Ingram nearly unfettered access to a significant workload.
