Ingram has rushed for 148 yards on 21 carries (7.0 ypc) this preseason while catching two passes for 27 yards and scoring two touchdowns. "We saw a snapshot of the player Ingram could be at the end of last season," the website said. "He looks even better than he did then."
Ingram had a pair of 2-yard runs on the opening drive before bursting a 17-yard run. He took eight handoffs for 46 yards, averaging 5.8 yards per attempt. He has 21 carries for 148 yards and a touchdown through three preseason games.
According to ESPN.com, Ingram stayed on the field during Monday's two-minute drill in practice, catching a pair of passes from Drew Brees. While Pierre Thomas is expected to be the main pass-catching back for New Orleans, Ingram should play a more versatile role than he has in his career, the website said.
"I know I'm an all-purpose back, a complete back," said Ingram, who has 24 receptions in his first three seasons. "I can do everything."
Ingram caught a 23-yard pass from Ryan Griffin for a touchdown in the second quarter, his lone catch and target of the night. He finished the game with five carries for a team-high 19 yards.
Ingram ran eight times for 83 yards and a touchdown against the Rams. Robinson carried five times for 23 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 16 yards.
