Mark Ingram Out With Hand Injury

New, comments

The Saints running back was off to a great start, but he will now be sidelined with an injury.

Mark Ingram has been one of the few bright spots so far for the Saints. He's averaged six yards-per-carry on his 24 runs this season. His 143 yards and three touchdowns easily leads the Saints improved rushing attack. Adam Shefter reported on Monday that Ingram suffered a hand injury during the contest against the Browns.

This is a huge blow for the Saints. Ingram has looked like a different running back this year, showing increased agility and elusiveness. Khiry Robinson should be in line to receive many of Ingram's carries.
