News: Ingram is slated to sit out about a month due to a hand injury he suffered during Sunday's game, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Impact: Ingram once again led the Saints in rushing Sunday against the Browns, when he totaled 83 yards and a touchdown on just 11 carries. However, in a surprise development, he'll now be sidelined because of a hand injury he picked up along the way Sunday. As a result, Ingram's encouraging early-season production of 143 rushing yards and three touchdowns will be put on hold. While his time off will include New Orleans' Week 6 bye, both Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson figure to carry the bulk of the Saints' backfield touches moving forward.
News: A person familiar with the situation says Ingram has a broken hand. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Monday because the Saints have not disclosed the injury, which was first reported by ESPN.
Impact: The person says the timeline for Ingram's return remains unclear. Saints coach Sean Payton, who was asked about the injury on Monday, says he's following his policy of not releasing injury information until the next NFL-required injury report, which for New Orleans this week is Wednesday afternoon.
