News: Ingram underwent a surgical procedure this week to repair a fracture in his hand, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Impact: Coach Sean Payton relayed Wednesday that because the bone in Ingram's hand was fractured and displaced, there was no way that the running back could play through the injury. While a precise timetable wasn't presented for Ingram's return to action, Payton indicated that the running back's status would be in the "week-to-week" category. As long as Ingram is out, Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas are in line for added work out of the New Orleans backfield.(RotoWire, )

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.(STATS, 1:08pm)

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.(RotoWire, )

News: Ingram had 11 carries for 83 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as three catches on four targets for 21 receiving yards, Sunday against the Browns. Impact: The Saints were hardly impressive overall, but Ingram was able to put together another good game. Despite getting only 24 carries through two games, he has 143 rushing yards and three touchdowns, all of which lead the team. Khiry Robinson grabbed eight carries Sunday, but only turned them into 31 yards, with Pierre Thomas running three times for 16. While the Saints will continue to split the workload, Ingram appears to be in the driver's seat for a majority of the touches, including the goal-line work (his TD was a one-yarder), which makes him far more valuable than the other options.(RotoWire, )

News: Ingram took only 20 of the Saints' 75 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss in Atlanta, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Meanwhile, Pierre Thomas was on the field for 34 snaps, and Travaris Cadet and Khiry Robinson each took 12, respectively. Impact: Since coach Sean Payton took over in 2006, the Saints have deployed a committee approach to their backfield distribution, and Triplett expects a similar snap distribution all year. Despite making the most of his snaps with 13 carries for 60 yards and two touchdowns, this could be bad news for Ingram, as it's unlikely he'll continue to score two touchdowns per game given the Saints' penchant for the pass. While he should still see the majority of the carries -- and remain one of the team's top options near the goal line -- his scattered workload as part of a committee in a pass-happy offense could to lead to frustratingly inconsistent results once again for the former Heisman Trophy winner.(RotoWire, )

News: Ingram had 13 carries for 60 yards and two touchdown Sunday against the Falcons. Impact: Ingram had a bit of an outburst on the sideline during the second half, but calmed down enough to score on two three-yard touchdown runs in the fourth quarter. The Saints used a committee-approach Sunday, with Ingram leading the backfield in carries, Khiry Robinson scoring on a short touchdown in the first half and Pierre Thomas doing most of his damage in the passing game. While the Saints eventually lost in overtime, there wasn't a single player in the backfield that outperformed the others, so the committee approach could continue in Week 2 against the Browns.(RotoWire, )
