New Orleans Saints ran back Mark Ingram will miss three to four weeks after suffering a second-degree MCL sprain. The veteran running back was injured in the Week eight of the NFL season in the team’s 24-0 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. Ingram caught just one pass for two yards and didn’t rush the ball in the game. He has largely served as a backup this season and has played sparingly starting behind running back Alvin Kamara. He avoided more serious injury and will return later this season.
#Saints A source said RB Mark Ingram suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain, meaning he will likely be out 3-4 weeks. It could have been a lot worse for the soon-to-be-returned Ingram.

Mark Ingram has rushed the ball 51 times for 196 yards and one touchdown this season with the New Orleans Saints. He also caught 11 passes for 46 yards and no touchdowns. His absence poses a problem for the Saints over the next three to four weeks. The team will need to have another running back to serve as the primary backup and change the run pace. Fortunately, they won’t be without him for long, and his recovery isn’t expected to be that long. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Ingram a speedy recovery and return to the football field.
