Mark Ingram suspended by National Football League for first four games of 2018

Following up on that, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Saints were already going to have Ingram taking on a lesser role in 2018, with Alvin Kamara taking over as the lead back. He's been suspended for violating the NFL's performance policy on enhancing drugs. 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. The running back also caught a career high 58 passes for 416 yards. Ingram won't be banned from the team's facilities until the Saints start prepping for their September 9 regular season opener against the Buccaneers.

But for the first four games, veteran running back Mark Ingram will be unable to participate. He averaged 4.9 yards per carry, was selected to his second Pro Bowl and combined with Kamara to become the first pair of National Football League running backs on the same team to each surpass 1,500 scrimmage yards in the same season. Kamara enjoyed a banner rookie season. What Ingram's suspension does is give Kamara a chance to put a stranglehold on lead duties, perhaps erasing the 1A/1B workload delineation that existed a year ago. New Orleans spent a 6th rounder on Louisiana Tech RB Boston Scott.

Ingram, a 2011 first-round pick, has been one of the Saints' key playmakers during his seven-year career.
