Mark Ingram II (knee) faces 'uphill battle' for Week 12, per RapoportNovember 25, 2021 | 07:48 AM
Saints running back Mark Ingram, who is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Bills, is dealing with swelling in his knee, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. While the veteran back "has a chance" and wants to suit up, Rapoport acknowledges that he faces an "uphill battle to play."
Writer's Analysis: Ingram has looked solid during the absence of Alvin Kamara (knee), totaling 221 scrimmage yards and a touchdown over his last two games. Without their top two running backs, the Saints could turn to Tony Jones Jr., a training camp standout who returned from injured reserve last week. If he Jones does draw the start, he'd fall into the low-end RB2 category.
