Saints Place RB Mark Ingram On Season-Ending Injured Reserve


Ian Rapoport reports that the Saints have placed RB Mark Ingram on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury.

  • Adam Caplan reports that the Saints promoted FB Austin Johnson to their active roster.
  • The Saints signed RB Bronson Hill to their practice squad.


Rand Getlin of NFL Media reports that Saints RB Mark Ingram is dealing with a “serious” shoulder injury.

According to Getlin, there is some fear with the Saints that this could be a season-ending issue for Ingram.

Should Ingram miss time, the Saints would likely turn to C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower as their top-two running backs.

Ingram, 25, is in the first year of his four-year, $16 million contract that included $7.6 million guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $1 million this season and another $3 million in 2016.

This year, Ingram has appeared in 12 games and ran for 769 yards on 166 carries (4.6 YPC) to go along with 50 receptions for 405 yards receiving and six total touchdowns.

We’ll have more regarding Ingram’s injury as the news is available.
