According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New Orleans Saints will have their star running back Mark Ingram in the lineup for Week 13’s important matchup against the Detroit Lions.

Ingram has missed two practices this week with a toe injury after coming off a huge performance against the Rams in which he was named FedEx’s Ground Player of the Week and NFC Offensive Player of the Week. On Friday, Ingram said he ‘felt good’ during practice participation.

Against the Rams, Ingram gained 146 yards and a touchdown on just 14 carries, including long of 61 yards. He also had a receiving touchdown of 21 yards on his lone reception, which was the first of his career.

For the season, Ingram is averaging 5.3 yards per carry with 721 rushing yards on 136 attempts. He’s also caught 30 passes for 248 yards, and has got into the end zone four times in 11 games.
