Mark Ingram suspended by National Football League for first four games of 2018

The New Orleans Saints will start the NFL season without Mark Ingram's services after he violated the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy. He was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft and has remained with the team ever since. Ingram will serve his suspension the first four games of the 2018 regular season.

The emergence of Alvin Kamara makes Ingram less important to the Saints' offense.

They stormed out to a 20-8 lead with 5:44 left in the first quarter. "Part of it was I thought they were locked in defensively". And while the comedian later said his tweet about Golden State's Draymond Green was a joke, it clearly was not amusing .

Ingram had his best season as a pro in 2017.

Quarterback Drew Brees would find him 58 times (a career-high in receptions) for 416 yards. He has rushed for 5,362 yards and 44 touchdowns while adding 207 catches and four more scores. When he's on the field, the Saints offense is even more unpredictable and hard with matchups. So while it's never good to receive a suspension, getting the first four weeks off might not be too detrimental to New Orleans. "He is now in the previous year of his contract, and as Rapoport suggested, he is "[desiring] a new deal" with the Saints, even if it means possibly playing second fiddle to the younger Kamara. Ingram will turn 29 this year, and the Saints are likely to let him play out his contract and test free agency next year.
