Saints running back Mark Ingram also landed in the concussion protocol after a hit from Panthers safety Kurt Coleman early in the third quarter of the Panthers’ 23-20 victory. It looks like Ingram has a good chance of being in the lineup for Week 12, however.
Saints coach Sean Payton said that Ingram will practice with the team on Wednesday, which indicates that he’s made good progress getting through the concussion protocol and should be on track for clearance to play against the Rams this Sunday.

It looks like Ingram may be able to play in Week 12. When he was knocked out of the game, he had 10 touches to just five for Hightower, so he had regained control of the Saints' backfield after good rushing efficiency in Week 9 (15 carries, 158 yards) and Week 10 (11 carries, 50 yards).
