Mark Ingram (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Texans.
After being limited to only five carries in the Sept. 15 tilt with the Redskins, Ingram was able to use the New Orleans Saints ' recently completed bye week to heal up, and should be on tap for a more normal workload Sunday. The Texans rank 22nd in the league with 112.8 yards allowed on the ground per game, making Ingram a solid lineup option for those playing in either daily or season-long formats.
Mark Ingram (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Although Ingram has been limited at practice, there's been nothing to suggest that his injury is serious. He'll likely handle his usual workload in a matchup with an improved Houston defense.
Ingram has so far avoided the injury report to this point in the season, but a brief absence during a Week 10 loss in Washington may have a culprit. No matter, he was able brush off the shoulder concern and fit in individual drills Wednesday, setting a precedent for this week. Expect his status to receive clarification upon the release of Friday's injury report.
Mark Ingram gained 77 yards on five carries and caught three of four targets for another 21 yards in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.
The 25-year-old was sidelined for a period of time after picking up a knock in the first half, according to Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate, but he was able to return to the game. Ingram has been productive on the season, as he has racked up at least 96 total yards in eight of 10 games, and Sunday's injury is not expected to hamper him moving forward. New Orleans will enjoy a Week 11 bye before traveling to Houston the following Sunday.
Mark Ingram gained just 52 rushing yards on 21 carries, but caught 4-of-5 targets for 42 receiving yards Sunday against the Titans.
Ingram was held to a meager 2.5 yards-per-carry average by Tennessee's stout run defense in a disappointing all-around performance. On the bright side, the 21 carries marked a season high, meaning the former Alabama star is still very much involved in the offense. He should be able to find more holes next Sunday in Washington.
