"Mark Ingram is suspended the first four games for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs", Underhill tweets, repeating what I just said.

Ingram will be eligible to return to the Saints' active roster October 1, one day after the team's Week 4 game against the New York Giants.

New Orleans' ground game ranked fifth in the NFL with an average of 129.4 yards per game last season while leading the league with 23 rushing touchdowns and an average of 4.7 yards per carry. The running back also caught a career high 58 passes for 416 yards.

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says that Ingram has not been around the team's facility and will not be there for OTA's.

New Orleans opens its season with home games against the Buccaneers and Browns, then has a pair of road games against the Falcons and Giants. He will still be eligible for all of the Saints offseason programs, training camp, and preseason games. The team will likely lean heavily on second-year back Alvin Kamara with Ingram out. Alvin Kamara's clearly the victor here, but we'll see how much more of a rushing role the Saints hand him. New Orleans spent a 6th rounder on Louisiana Tech RB Boston Scott. The Week 2 trip to New Orleans comes when the host Saints will be without starting running back Mark Ingram.

A former Alabama standout and Heisman trophy victor is in trouble in the NFL. He posted disappointing numbers early in his career while splitting work with the likes of Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles, but Ingram has become a more effective, well-rounded player in recent years, going over 1,100 scrimmage yards in each of the past four seasons.
