The Saints' running back roles are one of the hardest things to project heading into the regular season. Mark Ingram will likely remain the workhorse, but there were times this summer when Tim Hightower looked like the best runner.
The team also has C.J. Spiller and Marcus Murphy who offer similar speed and agility. The story was mostly about Spiller and how he appears to be back to looking like a pass-catching weapon the Saints envisioned when they signed him, but the Hightower note is one Ingram owners may want to pay attention to.
