According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Saints RB Mark Ingram sustained a hand injury in Sunday’s loss at Cleveland and will miss “about a month.”
The Saints’ bye is in Week Six (Oct. 12). On the timetable reported by Schefter, Ingram’s status for the club’s next three games (vs. Minnesota, at Dallas, vs. Tampa Bay) could be in doubt. The Saints return from their bye with a road game at Detroit on October 19.
Ingram has had a strong start to the 2014 season, racking up 143 yards and three TDs on 24 carries.
Ingram won the 2009 Heisman trophy for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
