Saints News, 9/17/14: Mark Ingram Undergoes Surgery on Fractured Hand

New, comments

NOLA.com reports: "Two screws were inserted above Ingram's thumb during the procedure. Because the bone was fractured and displaced, Payton said, there was no way that Ingram could attempt to play through the injury. Payton said Ingram's status would be "week to week" and depend on how quickly the bone repairs and heals."
