Mark Ingram wants to prove he's an every-down back
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Mark Ingram said he's shocked by the impending release of Darren Sproles and possible trade of Pierre Thomas, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Ingram called the situation "a double-edged sword" because it appears he's headed for a bigger role.

"It's an exciting time in my career," Ingram told the paper. "I just want to take advantage of my situation and the opportunity that's presenting itself. Just want to prove to the organization that I can be the back they wanted, an every-down back, type of playmaker that they need.

"I'm excited about my situation. It's unfortunate to see a lot of guys go, but I'm excited about my opportunity that I have coming up."

Ingram averaged a career-high 4.9 yards per carry last season.

Mark Ingram goes 'one and out' against Seahawks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Mark Ingram appeared destined for a big game Saturday against Seattle. Then came the last three quarters.

Ingram rushed for 30 yards on his first three attempts and finished the first quarter with 34 yards on four carries. But he was stymied thereafter and finished with just 49 yards on 10 tries. He also had the lone turnover of the game, a second-quarter fumble that killed a New Orleans drive.

Mark Ingram surging at season's end
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Mark Ingram is averaging 5.8 yards per carry since the midway point of the season, with 433 yards and two touchdowns on 75 carries. He called his performance against the Eagles -- 18 carries, 97 yards and a score -- the best of his career.

Coach Sean Payton said Ingram has been “running real well."

“I liked his ball security the other night," Payton told the team's website. "Those weren’t always easy yards. I’m pleased with how he’s playing. I think he’s had a handful of games now toward the latter part of the season where he’s been exceptional.”

Ingram got a heavy workload with Pierre Thomas (chest) sidelined. It's unclear whether Thomas will play Saturday at Seattle.

Saints' running game picking up at right time
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Saints averaged 79.8 rushing yards per game over their first eight games. Over the final eight, they averaged 104.4. The running game continued to do its part in the playoff win in Philadelphia, producing 185 yards as Mark Ingram gained 97 yards on 18 carries and Khiry Robinson netted 45 yards on eight totes.

New Orleans played without leading rusher Pierre Thomas (chest).

“I love the fact that the coaches had the faith in me and the other backs to run the ball a lot in the game," Ingram told The Advocate.

The Saints likely will find it tougher to run against the Seahawks on Saturday. In Week 13 at Seattle, New Orleans gained 44 yards on 17 carries in a 34-7 loss.
