Mark Ingram suspended first four games of 2018 season for PEDs

On Tuesday, the NFL announced Saints tailback Mark Ingram has been suspended for four games, the result of violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.

Ingram will be eligible to participate in all offseason practices and preseason games. The veteran running back has been absent from Saints voluntary team workouts so far this spring.

Ingram will be eligible to return to game action October 8 against the Washington Redskins.

The substance Ingram tested positive for has not been revealed.

It looks like the New Orleans Saints are going to have to start their 2018 season without their leading rusher from 2017 on the field.

Last season, Ingram combined with NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara to provide an explosive one-two punch in the Saints backfield.

Ingram made his second Pro Bowl by running for a career-high 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns.

"Mark Ingram has been around the facility during conditioning and he won't be around for OTAs, source says", Rapoport tweeted.

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.

The good news for the Saints is that if there's one team in the National Football League that can afford to lose their leading rusher for four games, it might be New Orleans. The 2017 NFL Rookie of the Year, he carried the ball 120 times for 728 yards and 8 touchdowns.

A former Alabama standout and Heisman trophy victor is in trouble in the NFL.
