Nick Underhill of The Advocate tweeted that Saints running back Mark Ingram has been suspended for the first four games of the 2018 NFL season, "for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs."
The Saints don't go on bye until Week 6, meaning Ingram will be eligible to return to game action in Week 5.
Obviously, this is a big blow to Ingram’s stock, but owners may be able to nab him as an RB3, weather the four-game suspension, and then get low-end RB1 numbers for the stretch run. Alvin Kamara gets a bump since he should see an increased workload in the first four weeks. The Saints will likely use another running back to keep Kamara’s touches under control.
