Mark Ingram of New Orleans Saints has been declared inactive for Thursday night at the Caesar Superdome.
Zack Moss of Buffalo Bills has also been inactive for the game. While Mark Ingram is marked as questionable due to his knee injury, Bulls’ Moss was decidedly healthy and eligible but the coach has decided not to play him. That rules them both out for the game on Thursday at the Caesars’ Superdome.
The injury to Mark Ingram II is a bitter setback for an already depleted defense of the New Orleans team. His mate in defense, Alvin Kamara is also out. He was ruled out with a knee injury on Wednesday.
The lead runner for Saints’ will likely be Tony Jones Jr., a 2nd-year pro. Veteran Ty Montgomery will help carry the burden. but the inclusion of Taysom Hill, quarterback, in the running game is doubtful as he is the only active quarterback backup. Ian Book is another healthy scratch for the team.
