Saints RB Mark Ingram suspended four games for PED violation

Ingram has rushed for over 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons and has registered 154 receptions over the past three seasons, including a career-high 58 in 2017. The biggest game on the schedule Ingram will have to sit out will be the September 23 trip to play against the Atlanta Falcons, a division game and the Saints biggest rival.

The NFL has handed Ingram a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Despite the suspension, Ingram will still be allowed to participate in everything the Saints do this offseason, which means he'll be at training camp and he'll be allowed to play in each of the team's four preseason games.

Last season, Ingram combined with NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara to provide an explosive one-two punch in the Saints backfield.

Kamara took on a slightly larger share of the workload down the stretch last season - which could remain the norm even when Ingram returns. Last year, undrafted rookie Trey Edmunds made the roster as a special-teams player and also carried the ball nine times for 48 yards and a touchdown.
