National Football League suspends Saints running back Mark Ingram

Mark Ingram suspended: 5 things to know about the Saints' running back depth

Saints running back Mark Ingram is suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league's performance enhancing drug policy, according to multiple reports. Ingram is headed into a contract season, and the Saints will probably be preparing to move on. During the 2017 season, Ingram totaled 1,124 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns for the Saints, which were both career highs.

"Ingram is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games". He had his first career 1,000-yard season in 2016 and followed that up with another one in 2017.

New Orleans still features a lot of offensive firepower with Drew Brees at the controls and Alvin Kamara proving a dynamic complement to Ingram in his rookie campaign. That's the standard suspension for a first-time PED offense. He also caught an astounding 81 passes for 826 yards and 5 more scores.

It was a huge year for the 28-year-old running back, who seems to be getting better with age.

The former Heisman Trophy victor was a first-round draft pick in 2011. But if the Saints want to roll with their electric runner in Kamara, it's hard to imagine that would be bad thing.
