Ingram's Career Continues To Sputter

Saints_Ingram_2013Former Heisman winner Mark Ingram has started the third year of his career. And his career continues to sputter.

He gained 11 yards on nine carries for the Saints on Sunday, part of the teams usual three-headed tailback attack. On Tuesdays PFT Live, coach Sean Payton addressed the question of whether the numbers are a reflection on Ingram or the rest of the rushing offense.

I think its a fair question, Payton said. Its a good question because we try to look at that and make sure, Hey, is this the right play or player? Did he have a chance? [On] one weakside lead play, he slips on the turf and get a minus-two loss where we think its well blocked, so you know thats something Im sure he frustrated with. Then there is a run or two where its tough for any of our backs, but overall you get a feel and I think he had a couple positive runs for us against Atlanta, be it on a draw or an outside zone scheme.
