Saints' Mark Ingram Suspended For Violating PED Policy

A New Orleans Saints helmet sits on the turf before the start of the Saints and Baltimore Ravens preseason game at M&T Bank Stadium on August 13, 2015 in Baltimore, Maryland.

Ingram is coming off his second Pro Bowl season for the Saints.

This is going to be a blow to the Saints, who have clearly gone to a run-first offense and taken pressure an aging Drew Brees. He led the team with 230 carries for 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns last season while adding 58 catches for 416 yards.

According to Nick Underhill (put it on the Underhill's bill!), the league has suspended Ingram for four games for violating the policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport says that Ingram, with one year left on his contract, wants a new deal, but, given the suspension news, any talks of that nature are unlikely to progress right now. Kamara, a 2017 third-round pick, recorded 728 rushing yards, 826 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns while pushing Adrian Peterson out of the depth chart by Week 5.
