Alvin Kamara has been out of action for a few weeks and although he is closer to getting back on the pitch, the Saints – specifically Mark Ingram – are ready to play on Thursday Night Football without him.
Ingram has started three of the last four matches for Saints, a total of 285 script yards and one touchdown. The Saints exchanged for Ingram at the end of October, which is a great idea considering what they’re about to go through.
Even if Ingram is feeling healthy and well, Saints fans should lower their expectations for him. He hasn’t run more than 100 meters since Week 12 of the 2019 season.
New Orleans desperately needs Ingram to have a classic performance against the Dallas Cowboys. The Saints have the third worst pounding attack in the last three games. They needed to keep up with Dallas’ offensive behavior somehow, and if Trevor Siemian couldn’t get the job done easily, it was Ingram’s responsibility to get it done on the ground.
Ingram may also have the opportunity to do so. Dallas is ranked 19th in the league in yards per javelin. If the Saints can figure out how to attack their defenses on the ground, they might succeed on Thursday night.
