Saints RB Mark Ingram had another strong practice for the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, and he’s looking awfully healthy after offseason toe and knee surgeries. At the start of camp last week, Ingram’s participation was being limited every other day. But he practiced fully on both Wednesday and Thursday – both of which were fairly physical sessions in full pads.
Ingram looked especially good on a screen pass in team drills, showing both his speed and power as he gained extra yards after the catch. The team hasn’t done any live tackling, so he can’t be fully evaluated yet. But the second-year pro looks generally strong, fast and healthy, which is a good sign.
Ingram had a minor arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in May after feeling some soreness in the knee. And he had a more significant surgery earlier in the offseason to repair a tendon in his big toe – the injury that ended his rookie season early last year.
