New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram underwent surgery this week to repair a fracture in his hand, coach Sean Payton said Wednesday.

Two screws were inserted above Ingram's thumb during the procedure. Because the bone was fractured and displaced, Payton said, there was no way that Ingram could attempt to play through the injury.

Payton said Ingram's status would be "week to week" and depend on how quickly the bone repairs and heals. However he said Ingram definitely wouldn't play Sunday when the Saints play the Minnesota Vikings at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

A bone in the hand usually fully heals in about 3 weeks. But it might still be weakened by then, he might want to wear some kind of special protection or whatnot.

I told you all about this on Monday. If I ever say I have a source, which I RARELY do, you can take it as fact.

After I read that it came out kinda bad. Point is I told you so.

Expect 50+ passes from Drew this week. I mean, Payton would throw it 40 times with Jim Brown in the backfield.

Ingram didn't fumble after he broke his hand. That's a good sign that it's not too serious.
