Saints Training Camp Recap, Day 5: Mark Ingram Busts Jonathan Vilma's Nose During Monday Practice

New, comments

Ingram is reportedly in outstanding physical shape this year and appears to be running like a wrecking ball in OTAs and camp. He's already responsible for taking out Victor Butler's ACL during earlier OTA's when the two collided during what was supposed to be a non-contact practice. Yesterday, he reportedly busted Vilma's nose to the point that stitches were required to close the wound. Vilma was limited in practice today. Is this the year the Heisman Trophy winner from Alabama explodes and lives up to his 1st round draft status?
