  • New Orleans Saints Running Back Mark Ingram

He has not been participating in voluntary offseason workouts. That said, NFL Network's Ian Rapaport reports that Ingram has not been around the facility during conditioning and he won't be around for OTAs.

It is not yet known which PED substance triggered the positive test from Ingram.

The New Orleans Saints are coming off an impressive season that saw them reach the divisional round of the playoffs led by their dynamic running game of their Pro Bowl running backs in Mark Ingram and Offensive Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara.

The veteran running back is scheduled to earn a base salary of $4 million in the final year of his contract, meaning he will forfeit almost $1 million - and possibly more in bonus money - by missing the four games.

Last season, his seventh in the NFL, Ingram rushed for a career-high 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Mark Ingram #22 of the New Orleans Saints in action against the Atlanta Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Superdome on December 24, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana. "This is also why New Orleans hasn't shopped him". His finest campaign came past year, when Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara became the first backfield tandem to each eclipse the 1,500-yard mark with scrimmage yards. Last year, undrafted rookie Trey Edmunds made the roster as a special-teams player and also carried the ball nine times for 48 yards and a touchdown. For good measure Kamara also ran back a kickoff 106 yards for a touchdown.

Ingram won a Heisman Trophy at Alabama in 2009 after helping the Crimson Tide to a national championship.
