Saints RB Mark Ingram suspended 4 games for PED violation

He has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL's performance enhancing drug policy.

Ingram and his representatives at VIP Sports Management have not commented on the test results or whether Ingram will appeal.

Ingram has rushed for over 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons and has registered 154 receptions over the past three seasons, including a career-high 58 in 2017. Ingram won't be banned from the team's facilities until the Saints start prepping for their September 9 regular season opener against the Buccaneers.

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 will be eligible to play October 8 when the Saints play host to the Washington Redskins on "Monday Night Football".

In a second tweet, President Trump said: "It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened". The lawyers want to resolve the investigation as quickly as possible, but there's no agreement on how to do that.

Ingram, 28, will miss games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants. "He is now in the past year of his contract, and as Rapoport suggested, he is "[desiring] a new deal" with the Saints, even if it means possibly playing second fiddle to the younger Kamara.

He earned his second Pro Bowl selection, topping 1,000 yards for the second consecutive year after failing to reach this mark in his first five seasons. "This is also why New Orleans hasn't shopped him".

Ingram was drafted by the Saints in the first round in 2011 and has established himself as the team's lead back over the past few years.

But for the first four games, veteran running back Mark Ingram will be unable to participate. The 2017 season was his most productive.
