Payton has figured it out. ... For the type of O line we have the best running game we can produce is a small quick shifty good in space back , he's preserving Sproles and giving another guy a shot. ... In think he is going to end up severing ties with our more tradition backs ... We are what we are , I was thinking the same thing we are a different offense with Sproles in the game , Reggie bush was the same asset not to this extent though ... Draft Deanthony Thomas out of Oregon and give ingram his walking papers

Yes! And with Sproles getting a heavier load of rushing touches, in a roundabout way that is a silent vote of "no confidence" in Ingram... or in Ingram returning to the same role in the offense that he had previously.

I'm thinking Ingram might be hurt for a while, even though he wasn't a big part of the offence, he's still a running back. If this is the case, we're gonna need to preserve the running backs we do have and keep them (this mostly applies to Sproles and Cadet) off returns.

I think Ingram has a major case of Turf Toe; this is, or can be a major injury which never heals properly. It is possible he had this occur in college and thus never really performed as a pro.

Williams should take over KR and PR duties which means Sproles can actually get a breather. I would hate to lose Sproles on a KR or PR; he is too important to our offense at this point.

We might see Mark Ingram end up on IR soon.
