Saints News, 11/14/14: Ingram's Success in Leading Role Not Lost On Sean Payton

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: “Look, each week we’ll come up with the best plan. Obviously we pay close attention to what Mark’s doing right now. And he’s doing real well,” Payton said of Ingram, who has rushed for more than 100 yards in three straight games since fellow backs Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson went down with injuries. “Shoot, a year ago there were a ton of people crying for [Ingram’s] head -- a handful of you here [in the media]. So I think this, obviously it’s good to see him playing well and healthy. He’s been real important in light of some of the injuries we’ve had. And I think that’s something that is real encouraging.
