Ingram not solely to blame for Saints running woes

This was not what the Saints were expecting when they traded a future first-round pick to get running back Mark Ingram.

Then again, this wasnít what Ingram was expecting either.

The Saints havenít found much of a role for Ingram, who has rushed 32 times for 90 yards this season. That 2.8 yards per attempt average is second-lowest in the league.

But they also have him pigeonholed as a short-yardage back, working him with fullbacks and tight ends and what most people call a base offense. Other chances, such as when they spread the field and run at nickel defenses, arenít available to him.
