Mark Ingram Receives 4-Game Suspension

Saints' Mark Ingram Suspended Four Games By NFL For PED Violation

His finest campaign came past year, when Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara became the first backfield tandem to each eclipse the 1,500-yard mark with scrimmage yards.

The NFL announced that the veteran running back was receiving the ban for violating league policies on performance-enhancing substances. The suspension means that Ingram's first game in 2018 won't come until October, when the Saints host the Redskins for a "Monday Night Football" showdown.

Ingram has played seven seasons for the Saints, amassing 5,362 yards and 44 touchdowns.

Reports say, Ingram hasn't been around the Saints training facility in Metairie and the suspension expected for the best few weeks.




The Saints will start the season without Mark Ingram's services. After all, the Saints still have Alvin Kamara to pick of the slack.

After signing a four-year deal with the Saints in 2015 that averages $4 million annually, Ingram is set to lose approximately $1 million because of the suspension.

He earned his second Pro Bowl selection, topping 1,000 yards for the second consecutive year after failing to reach this mark in his first five seasons. The Saints may also elect to dip into the available free agents to add depth behind Kamara if they aren't comfortable with the current grouping.

The former Heisman Trophy victor was a first-round draft pick in 2011. The 2017 season was his most productive.
