The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Mark Ingram will have an “uphill climb” to play on Thanksgiving Day against the Bills. With Alvin Kamara out for the third straight week with a knee injury, Tony Jones will be the Saints’ primary running back come game-time. Ingram is second on the team with 499 rushing yards, behind Kamara’s 530 yards. Meanwhile, Jones has only had 22 carries for 79 yards this season. New Orleans is 17th in the NFL in rushing yards with 1,179, so losing their top two backs is going to be a tough pill to swallow. The Saints also have the third least passing yards league-wide. However, New Orleans is fifth in reception touchdowns, so all they have to do is figure out a way to get downfield.
There is no doubt Ingram being out will negatively impact the Saints’ chances of winning, so head over to Fanduel Sportsbook to see how far the lines end up moving.
