Staying healthy might be only thing between Saints’ Mark Ingram and stardom

The only thing that stands between Mark Ingram and the Pro Bowl might be his health.

Ingram is no longer the young first-round pick who struggled to make the transition from Heisman Trophy to the pros; he spent 12 weeks among the NFL’s leaders in yards from scrimmage last fall. By almost any measure, he’d pushed his way onto the list of the league’s most productive backs.

Then his old adversary reared his ugly head again. With four games left in the season, Ingram tore the rotator cuff in his shoulder, underwent surgery and landed on injured reserve.

That toe injury really set him back. I still think that was a freak accident and the missing games due to injury don't look nearly as bad, I haven't seen him try to hurdle a tackle since but I could have missed a few plays every now and then.

I can almost guarantee that he will miss games again. I sort of like him but have not seen him be the standout guy like he was in college. The pros hit a lot harder and I just don't see him as an every down back. It has changed though and most teams have a two/three rotation and go with the one performing the best. So we will see how this plays out.

Define stardom.

Among the leaders or trailing them is a good thing but stardom!?!?!

He really needs to kick it in gear and be dominant. Be runner that people worry about.

When Ingram went down with injury he was in the top 10 for total yards from scrimmage. Hopefully this season with Hightower and Spiller to keep him Fresh, He will be able to more explosive and healthy.

I do agree. He makes the most with the limited rushing oppurtunities he gets. Plus the kid can catch the ball out of the backfield.
