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

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

On Tuesday, the NFL announced Saints tailback Mark Ingram has been suspended for four games, the result of violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.

The 28-year-old still will be able to participate in any offseason activities and the four preseason games the Saints play, but according to Rapoport, Ingram hasn't been present around the team facility.

It is not yet known which PED substance triggered the positive test from Ingram. Rapoport adds that Ingram will likely remain away from the team during conditioning and OTAs, but will return for mandatory workouts. In the 2017 season, Ingram earned his second career Pro Bowl nod after recording a career-high 1,124 rushing yards with 12 touchdowns, while also hauling in 58 catches for 416 receiving yards. But with Ingram out for the first four games, the depth chart at the position all of a sudden has become much more important. His finest campaign came previous year, when Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara became the first backfield tandem to each eclipse the 1,500-yard mark with scrimmage yards. The Week 2 trip to New Orleans comes when the host Saints will be without starting running back Mark Ingram. The 2017 NFL Rookie of the Year, he carried the ball 120 times for 728 yards and 8 touchdowns.




Ingram, a former Heisman Trophy victor from Alabama, was one of the team's first-round draft picks in 2011 and led the team in rushing in 2017 with 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The good news for the Saints is that if there's one team in the National Football League that can afford to lose their leading rusher for four games, it might be New Orleans.
