Saints News, 10/9/14: Payton Says Mark Ingram Might Play Week 7 At Detroit

New, comments

As reported by Mike Triplett at ESPN.com, Payton said yesterday while appearing on CBS Sports Radio, “With the fracture that he had, which is right where the thumb and the hand kind of go together, you gradually just reduce what he’s having to wear. And he’s probably, I would say three or four weeks away from not having to wear anything...But right now, there’s a chance he plays in the next game.” When asked if Jimmy Graham might also play in the team's first game after the bye week, Payton only responded, "We'll see."
