New Orleans Saints tailback Mark Ingram looking strong, healthy

Mark Ingram had another strong practice for the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, and he’s looking awfully healthy after offseason toe and knee surgeries. At the start of camp last week, Ingram’s participation was being limited every other day. But he practiced fully on both Wednesday and Thursday – both of which were fairly physical sessions in full pads.

Ingram looked especially good on a screen pass in team drills, showing both his speed and power as he gained extra yards after the catch. The team hasn’t done any live tackling, so he can’t be fully evaluated yet. But the second-year pro looks generally strong, fast and healthy, which is a good sign.

“I’m feeling good,” Ingram said. “Just monitoring it, seeing how it reacts every day. I feel good. I feel strong and fast out there. And we’ll just keep an eye on it.”

Ingram had a minor arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in May after feeling some soreness in the knee. And he had a more significant surgery earlier in the offseason to repair a tendon in his big toe – the injury that ended his rookie season early last year.

He has to excel this season and I hope he does, he is moving up on the expendable chart otherwise.

I like this kid ... for all the talk (not here, but in general) about the risk of taking a RB in the first round, Ingram is exactly the type of RB you go after in the first round. He was still on the board when the Lions took Fairley in the 2011 draft, and while I'm sure Nick is going to work out, I desperately wanted Detroit to take Ingram as the solution to their problems in the backfield ... I have high expectations for this guy.

Who are the Lions?....... Just kidding. I agree I think Ingram was a good pick for us.

I'm glad to hear the positive side of this, and not the down side. We will need all to play a huge part this season.

Ingram is the ideal back for the Saints. He will be the third down back and will be fine. He is the next Emmitt Smith. Last year he had no training camp and also had a couple of injuries. He still looked good in limited carries.

It would be great to have a good cowbell back to compliment Pierre's elusiveness and Sproles quickness. Ivory is a beast but can't seem to stay healthy for any length of time. We can break down stats all day long but when it comes right down to it...when the Saints run the ball, they win.
