Ingram carried 10 times for 25 yards while catching his only target for three yards during Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram didn't find any daylight against a Vikings defense that allowed just 3.7 yards per carry during the regular season. His production certainly was aided by the fact the Saints fell behind 17-0 by halftime and likely weren't able to keep the ball on the ground as often as they might've liked. Altogether it was another unproductive performance for a running back who was among the most reliable fantasy assets for the majority of the 2017 season, and he's now been limited to 38.0 total yards per game without a touchdown in his final three outings to close the campaign (including the postseason). While this might leave a bad taste in the mouth's of fantasy owners, the Saints are set to return nearly all key cogs of its offense in 2018 and Ingram should again be primed to helm one of the league's most potent rushing attacks.

Ingram finished with nine rushes for 22 yards and caught his lone target for 13 yards in Sunday's 31-26 NFC wild-card win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram and partner in crime Alvin Kamara always faced a tough matchup, but neither tailback could get anything going Sunday. In fact, Ingram's rushing output marked his lowest since Week 1. Coincidentally, that performance came against the Vikings, who Ingram will face next Sunday in the divisional round.

Ingram gained 35 yards on 13 carries and 19 yards on four receptions in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram led the Saints in carries but it was Alvin Kamara who had the big game, netting 283 total yards and two scores in Tampa. Ingram has only had between 11 and 14 carries each of the last seven weeks but he's been a solid contributor in the passing game, hauling in 27 passes in that same span. While the dynamic Kamara will continue to be heavily involved in the offense, Ingram remains the best bet to lead the Saints running backs in touches when the team hosts the Panthers in next Saturday's playoff game.

Ingram carried 13 times for 44 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Falcons. He also caught all three targets for an additional 22 yards in the 23-13 win.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram broke loose for a 26-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but he mustered just 18 yards on his other 12 carried combined. The touchdown was his 12th in the last 11 games, and he now has at least 62 scrimmage yards in all but one contest this season. Ingram's remarkable consistency has made him a premier fantasy option at running back and he should continue as such next week against the Buccaneers, as his team jostles for playoff positioning.

Ingram ran for 74 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries and added 77 yards on five catches during Sunday's 31-19 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram could have ended Sunday's contest with a crisp 101 total yards and a touchdown, but he sliced through the Jets defense in the closing moments for an exclamation point - a 50-yard touchdown run. It was his second play of the day that went for at least 50 yards. The Saints have thrived on the versatility that both Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara have brought to the running and passing games. If anything, Kamara's emergence has helped keep Ingram fresh. The veteran back has topped at least 90 total yards in five of his last six games as compared to thrice in his first eight games of the year.

Ingram (toe) rushed 12 times for 49 yards and brought in four of five target for 43 yards in Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Despite backfield mate Alvin Kamara exiting the game for good in the first quarter to be evaluated for a concussion, Ingram was unable to generate much on the ground in what turned out to be a modest number of opportunities. His rushing total presented his second of under 50 yards in the last three contests, and Ingram actually saw a slight drop of two carries over his Week 13 tally despite his lead-back status. He remained an important part of the passing game, however, helping to prop up his night from a fantasy perspective. Ingram will look to bounce back in a Week 15 home showdown against the Jets, and could be in for expanded opportunity if Kamara is unable to return in time for that game.

Ingram (toe) is listed as active Thursday at Atlanta, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With three days between games, the Saints took a cautious approach with Ingram's toe injury, keeping him out of drills both Tuesday and Wednesday. Considering the tandem of Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara has powered the Saints to a two-game lead over the reigning NFC champions, expect the veteran to handle his typical workload of roughly 53 percent of the offensive snaps. If the last eight outings are any indication, Ingram's average of 110.3 yards from scrimmage and nine rushing touchdowns are a fair estimation against the Falcons' 18th-ranked run defense.

Ingram (toe) is expected to play Thursday night against the Falcons, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram was held out of practice both Tuesday and Wednesday, raising a real concern that he might not be able to play in the divisional matchup coming off a short week. Though the news seems positive, be sure to check back for the official inactives list at approximately 7 p.m. EST to confirm Ingram's status on the active roster. Whether or not Ingram is cleared to play, Alvin Kamara may be counted on to take on a heavier workload if Ingram is not quite at 100 percent.

Ingram (toe) was listed as a non-participant at Wednesday's practice and is questionable for Thursday's game against the Falcons, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ingram didn't appear limited in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Panthers, playing deep into the fourth quarter and finishing with 122 scrimmage yards and a touchdown. He then showed up on Monday's practice report estimation as a limited participant, but there wasn't any real concern until he was downgraded to non-participation Tuesday. The decision to keep him as a DNP on Wednesday suggests Ingram is in real danger of missing Thursday's game. An absence would allow spectacular rookie Alvin Kamara to take on a larger workload, with Trey Edmunds and Jonathan Williams providing depth. Ingram's owners should be prepared for his availability to come down to a game-time decision, with the final call potentially unknown until the Saints release their inactive list at approximately 7:00 pm. ET on Thursday. There's also some chance Ingram will have his role scaled back even if he's cleared to play.

Ingram (toe) was listed as a non-participant at practice Tuesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

That said, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune relays that Ingram was on the field with his teammates Tuesday and participated in the stretching and conditioning portion of the Saints' walk-through practice. Added clarity on Ingram's Week 14 status should arrive upon the release of the team's Wednesday injury report pertaining to Thursday night's game against the Falcons.
