Mark Ingram: Suspended four games

Grant SmithMay 09, 2018

Boston Scott, a running back out of Louisiana Tech drafted by the Saints with their 2018 sixth-round pick, could also have a larger-than-expected opportunity in the fall with Ingram suspended.

Running back Mark Ingram has been suspended for a performance enhancing drug violation, according to multiple reports.

Rapoport also noted that even if Mark Ingram wasn't suspended by the National Football League, the Saints were still going to feature last year's top rookie, Alvin Kamara, as the team's top running back.

The Cleveland Browns have caught a bit of a break for their first road game of 2018. Entering a contract year, Ingram now won't debut until Week 5 vs. Washington.

For his part, Ingram also enjoyed a stellar 2017 campaign, notching career highs in carries (230), rushing yards (1,124), rushing touchdowns (12), receptions (58) and receiving yards (416).

Despite the suspension, Ingram will still be allowed to participate in everything the Saints do this offseason, which means he'll be at training camp and he'll be allowed to play in each of the team's four preseason games.

Of course, Kamara will likely be the featured player in the backfield at the start of the season trying to build off his outstanding rookie year. His pairing alongside Kamara had made for an explosive running game that the Saints hadn't had before that gave balance and less pressure on quarterback Drew Brees to carry the offense with his arm. He was voted onto the Pro Bowl for the second time last season.
