Mark Ingram fired up for clash with Titans
Saints running back Mark Ingram, often quiet and soft-spoken, was especially pumped for the Saints pre-season home opener, a clash with the Tennessee Titans.
During warm ups, Ingram went off, firing up his teammates minutes before quarterback Luke McCown led the team in its actual pre-game chant.
Ingram looked promising in New Orleans' first pre-season match up against the St. Louis Rams. The University of Alabama product is looking to capitalize on his health this season and live up to his first-round draft status, especially given that this is a contract year for him.
Earlier this year, the Saints parted ways with dual-threat running back Darren Sproles, so a breakout season from Ingram couldn't come at a better time for him or the team.
