Mark Ingram expected to miss a month-- Mon Sep 15 12:30 pm --
New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram is expected to miss about a month with a hand injury he suffered Sunday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Ingram was off to a good start this season rushing for 143 yards on 24 carries with 3 TDs over the first two weeks. Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas will likely see their roles increased.
Pierre Thomas expects changes to his role-- Thu Aug 21 6:00 pm --
Currently lining up as Saints' No. 3 RB
There has been much speculation about what New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas' role would be this season and the eighth-year veteran said Wednesday night he knows things are going to be different in 2014.
Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson both are expected to see their roles increase this season and Thomas figured to become the No. 3 back in the offense. However, Thomas doesn't plan on going quietly. While mentioning that coaches said his role will change this upcoming season, Thomas said he isn't going down without a fight.(New Orleans Times-Picayune)
FF Today's Take:The Saints haven't exactly tipped their hand in regards to Thomas' new role as he has yet to log a touch in the preseason. It seems likely he will come close to matching his passing-game contributions in light of Darren Sproles' departure, although Robinson's emergence will probably cap his snaps in the running game.
