New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram will miss three to four weeks after suffering a grade two MCL sprain. The veteran running back suffered the injury in Week Eight of the NFL season in the team’s 24-0 shutout win over the Las Vegas Raiders. Ingram caught just one pass for two yards and did not rush the ball in the game. He has largely served as a backup this season and played sparingly for starting running back Alvin Kamara. He avoided a bigger injury and will return later this season.
#Saints RB Mark Ingram suffered a grade 2 MCL sprain, source said, which means he’s likely out 3-4 weeks. Could have been a lot worse for Ingram, who will be back soon.

This season with the New Orleans Saints, Mark Ingram rushed the ball 51 times for 196 yards and one touchdown. He has also caught 11 passes for 46 yards and zero touchdowns. His absence poses a problem for the Saints in the next three to four weeks. The team will need to have another running back serve as their primary backup and change of pace running back. Luckily they will not be without him for long and his recovery is not expected to be that long. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Ingram a quick recovery and return to the football field.
