Saints RB Ingram hit with four-game ban for PED violation

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram had the best year of his career in 2017 as a part of the first National Football League backfield in more than four decades to generate two pro bowlers.

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). Last season, in a 34-31 victory vs. Washington, Ingram ran for 134 yards and one touchdown. Ingram, 28, will be eligible to return to the team on October 1, after the Saint's Week 4 game against the New York Giants. Ingram is far too important of an offensive piece for the Saints to discount in 2018.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the four-game suspension will cost Ingram $941,176. The Saints went 2-2 in those four games.

"I feel like I'm only getting better", a joyous Ingram told me following a practice session at this year's Pro Bowl. It provides Kamara with a huge chance to show the Saints, and other potential teams that he can be the man in their backfield. Kamara was also a Pro Bowler last season after rushing for 728 yards and eight touchdowns while also catching 81 passes for 826 yards and five more scores.

The Saints did draft Louisiana Tech running back Boston Scott, however Mouton says he doesn't believe that is Ingram's replacement. Ingram will turn 29 this year, and the Saints are likely to let him play out his contract and test free agency next year.
