New Orleans Saints: Injuries, Chris Ivory, and Mark Ingram

2 of 3

Running back Chris Ivory is a week away from being removed from the PUP list. He will be eligible to play as soon as the Saints week seven match-up against the Indianapolis Colts.

New Orleans does not have to rush Ivory back into the lineup, but head coach Sean Payton commented a few weeks back on his status saying he was in terrific shape and was ready to play.

The trio of Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram, and Darren Sproles hasn’t been ultra productive on the ground so far this season. Through five games they are averaging only 115.4 yards per games, ranking 14th overall in the league.

Ivory’s hard nosed running style would be a welcome additon to the backfield and a much needed boost.
