Falcons Vs. Saints Injury Report: Will Mark Ingram Play This Sunday?

The New Orleans Saints are fortunate enough to have arguably the deepest running backfield in the entire NFL. From the veteran Pierre Thomas, to the jitterbug free-agent signee Darren Sproles, to the journeyman now hard runner Chris Ivory the Saints have plenty of folks to carry the rock.

However their most talented ball carrier, their first-round draft Mark Ingram, has missed the last two games with a heel injury suffered in the Saints 62-7 thrashing of the Indianapolis Colts. The rookie was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, and no word has been given if Ingram will play Suinday.

The Atlanta Falcons boast the 7th-ranked rushing defense, and having Ingram out of the lineup could be to the benefit of Mike Smith's defense.
