Seems two banged up RBs — Eddie Lacy and Mark Ingram — are both unlikely to play. Lacy does have a glimmer of hope tho.

Some of the New Orleans media is thrilled about it, like WDSU’s Scott Walker.
With NFL Network reporting Mark Ingram is out today, I’ll say the Saints will have their best rushing output of the season today. By far.

He might have a point. This season he has carried the ball 17 times for 31 yards, or a horrendous 1.8 yards per carry. Ingram was also stuffed along the goal line twice in week 2.
Pierre Thomas has carried the ball 14 times for 72 yards and Darren Sproles has carried the ball 15 times for 48 yards. Thomas is averaging a gaudy 5.1 yards per carry. Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles are also active in the passing game catching 8 and 12 passes respectively. Mark Ingram has yet to contribute to the passing game.
