Ivory was thought to be a full go for the season until he rehabilitation was seen to be taking a bit longer than was originally thought during the offseason and training camp.
Ivory’s durability was an issue last season and seemed to constantly be injured. This is of course mostly due to his violent running style and the leap every rookie faces coming into the NFL.
Ivory’s mandated six week PUP list stay will be over following the road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 16. That means Ivory would be activated for the October 23 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Saints already have a solid backfield with RB Darren Sproles, RB Pierre Thomas, and RB Mark Ingram. I’m sure Sean Payton is itching to add Ivory to the mix and have some more good plays come his way.
