Mark Ingram: Sitting out another practice

Ingram (ankle) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Ingram's back-to-back absences from practice coming off a Week 7 bye isn't the most encouraging sign for his potential availability heading into Sunday's game against the Steelers. The Ravens will see if Ingram can get back on the practice field Friday, but if not, he'll likely be sidelined for the first time this season. The tandem of Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins would likely handle the bulk of the touches out of the backfield sans Ingram.

Mark Ingram: Unable to practice Wednesday

Ingram (ankle) is not particiapting in Wednesday's practice, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Ingram, despite having had a bye week to rest up, still hasn't progressed enough in recovery of his mid-to-high left ankle sprain to resume practicing. At this point it looks like the veteran running back is trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's game against the Steelers, though he will have two more opportunities to practice in some capacity. Baltimore's backfield will be led by Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins if Ingram is forced to miss more time.

Mark Ingram: Status for Week 8 uncertain

Coach John Harbaugh said Monday that how well Ingram (ankle) holds up in practice will determine his availability for Week 8, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Ingram has the benefit of coming off a full week of rest during Baltimore's bye, and Harbaugh reaffirmed that his injury isn't considered major. Still, given that the veteran running back is nursing a mid-to-high left ankle sprain, it's no lock that he'll be ready to face the Steelers on Sunday. Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins would be in line to split Baltimore's backfield reps if Ingram were forced to miss any time.

Mark Ingram: Has mid-to-high ankle sprain

Ingram has been diagnosed with a mid-to-high left ankle sprain following an MRI, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Ingram was knocked out of Sunday's win at Philadelphia, receiving a season-low offensive snap share of 12 percent. He only managed five carries for 20 yards, which marked the fifth time in six games in which he failed to surpass 40 yards from scrimmage. The Ravens have entered their Week 7 bye, so Ingram may have enough time to recover for their next contest Nov. 1 against the Steelers. Behind Ingram, Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins are the next running backs up for Baltimore.

Mark Ingram: Could be ready after bye

Coach John Harbaugh noted Monday that Ingram (ankle) "probably will be back" for the Ravens' next scheduled game, but added "we'll have to see," Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The Raven are on bye in Week 7 and are slated to play the Steelers on Nov. 1. Ingram will thus have some added healing time to prepare for that contest, but if he ends up not being ready for Week 8 action, added carries would be available for J.K. Dobbinsand Gus Edwards.

Mark Ingram: Exits Sunday's game

Ingram was forced out of Sunday's game against the Eagles with a left ankle injury, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Analysis: If Ingram is unable to return to the contest, Gus Edwards, J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill remain on hand to handle the Ravens' backfield duties Sunday.

Mark Ingram: Lead back in win over Bengals

Ingram registered 57 rushing yards on 11 carries during Sunday's 27-3 win against the Bengals.

Analysis: Thus continues the conundrum of investment in the Baltimore backfield, as the Ravens rushed for over 160 team rushing yards without a single RB exceeding 60 scrimmage yards or scoring a touchdown. After garnering 57.9 percent of Baltimore's RB carries in a trouncing of the Bengals, Ingram has the best chance of any Ravens back to fall into the end zone Week 6 against the Eagles' top-12 rush defense.

October 11, 2020 6:12 PM EST

Mark Ingram: Finds end zone

Ingram recorded eight rushes for 34 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against Washington. He added one reception for three yards.

Analysis: Ingram recorded a one-yard rushing touchdown late in the first quarter to tally the first score of the game. Despite that positive start, he earned single-digit rushing attempts for the third consecutive games and has not surpassed 10 attempts in a contest this season. Though he still leads the rotation of three backs that includes J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, Ingram will be touchdown reliant as he lacks both rushing volume and targets in the passing game. Week 5 should be another positive matchup for Ingram, however, as the Ravens will square off against the Bengals.

Mark Ingram: Held in check by Chiefs

Ingram rushed seven times for 30 yards in Monday night's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Ingram was also targeted once but failed to connect with quarterback Lamar Jackson. On a night when Baltimore trailed for the majority of the contest, the team's patented ground game never got into gear. Jackson led the Ravens with 83 yards, but no tailback topped 40 yards or garnered more than Ingram's seven carries. That being said, through three games, Ingram has totaled just 136 yards while scoring once, so Monday's performance actually resembled his average outing to date. While the small sample size is surely something to consider, the presence of rookie J.K. Dobbins, whose 38 receiving yards paced all pass-catchers, along with holdover Gus Edwards has resulted in Ingram being leaned on less. Fortunately for him, a Week 4 matchup against Washington should bode well for a Ravens rebound.

Mark Ingram: Finds end zone in Week 2

Ingram carried the ball nine times for 55 yards and a touchdown and caught two of three targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 33-16 win over the Texans.

Analysis: His 30-yard TD run in the fourth quarter ended any thought Houston might have had of mounting a comeback, but Ingram didn't do much else on the day, and Gus Edwards surprisingly led the Ravens in rushing yards. With rookie J.K. Dobbins coming off a big debut last week and Lamar Jackson also getting heavy usage on the ground, Ingram's production could remain erratic all year, but if he gets a healthy workload he could deliver a strong return in Week 3 against a Kansas City defense that just gave up over 100 scrimmage yards to both Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley in an overtime victory.

September 20, 2020 6:58 PM EST

Mark Ingram: Quiet debut to 2020

Ingram ran for 29 yards on 10 carries during Sunday's 38-6 win against the Browns.

Analysis: Coming off his third 1,000-yard rushing campaign of the past four seasons, Ingram's 2020 fantasy outlook may be trending downward following Week 1 developments. It was expected that J.K. Dobbins would cut into the veteran's workload this year, but the rookie's goal-line usage forebodes a potential decrease to Ingram's 15 total touchdowns from 2019 -- a critical factor to his fantasy utility. Game flow may have reduced Ingram's touch count in Week 1 with Baltimore carrying a three-possession lead throughout the second half, but it's notable that he only had two games with fewer than 12 carries in 15 appearances last season. In what figures to be a more closely-contested game Week 2 against the Texans, Ingram's workload will be important to monitor as he faces a defense that surrendered 166 rushing yards to the Chiefs on Thursday night.

Mark Ingram: Facing more competition

Ingram is expected to retain his starting job, but the workload could vary from week to week, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Ingram landed in the 12-to-16-carry range in 12 of his 15 regular-season games last year, consistently operating as the lead back ahead of Gus Edwards. The addition of second-round pick J.K. Dobbins makes things a bit more complicated this season, and while the Ravens are a decent bet to lead the league in rushing again, it's also fair to assume Lamar Jackson will account for a big chunk of that production. Now entering the second season of a three-year, $15 million contract, Ingram isn't likely to match his fantasy value from 2019.

Mark Ingram: Anticipates playing into mid-30s

Ingram believes he can play at a high level for at least four or five more years, Tom Valente of the Ravens' official website reports.

Analysis: It's an optimistic assessment for a 30-year-old running back, though Frank Gore has shown that it isn't impossible. Ingram could benefit from spending most of his career in committee backfields, maxing out at 230 carries and 58 catches in 2017. He didn't reach 200 touches until his fourth pro season, and he's averaged 232.8 per year since first hitting that mark. Ingram said he's been able to do most of his usual training work at home this offseason while he prepares for the second season of a three-year, $15 million contract. He figures to retain the lead role in a rushing attack that also leans on Lamar Jackson, and to a lesser extent fellow running backs Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.

Mark Ingram: Feeling better after resting

Ingram said his calf injury feels better now, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Ingram suffered the injury Week 16 and was limited to season-low 29 percent snap share in his next appearance, a 28-12 loss to Tennessee in the divisional round of the playoffs. It isn't clear if he'll play in the Pro Bowl, but he should be healthy before the start of the Ravens' offseason program, entering Year 2 of a three-year, $15 million contract. Ingram scored a career-high 15 touchdowns in 15 regular-season games during his first season in Baltimore, backed by healthy averages of 5.0 yards per carry and 8.5 per target. Gus Edward and Justice Hill should have roles in 2020, but the 30-year-old Ingram is a strong bet to retain the lead job.

Mark Ingram: Struggles with calf in upset loss

Ingram (calf) rushed six times for 22 yards and brought in one of two targets for nine yards in the Ravens' 28-12 divisional-round loss to the Titans on Saturday.

Analysis: Ingram came into the contest dealing with the calf injury he'd originally suffered in Week 16 against the Browns, and it wasn't exactly smooth sailing Saturday. Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports Ingram was on the sideline for at least one late first-half drive with his calf wrapped, although he was able to return and play in the second half, albeit sparingly. However, the sparse usage appears to have been at least as much a product of a game script that saw Baltimore unexpectedly trail the entire contest. The disappointing finish to the season aside, Ingram enjoyed an excellent debut campaign with the Ravens, rushing for 1,018 yards and 10 touchdowns while adding a 26-247-5 line through the air across 15 games. He'll be set for another important role next season, although both Gus Edwards and Justice Hill could certainly eat into his opportunities in 2020.

January 11, 2020 9:15 PM EST

Mark Ingram: Back in action Saturday

Ingram (calf) is listed as active Saturday against the Titans.

Analysis: Ingram practiced just one time (Friday) since straining his left calf Week 16, but the session was enough for the Ravens to give him clearance to return for the divisional round. There's a good bet he leads the team's running backs in snaps, but Lamar Jackson will be his dynamic self as a passer and rusher, and Gus Edwards also is on hand for reps. As a result, Ingram may not reach the 15.2 touches per game he received during the regular season.

January 11, 2020 3:49 PM EST

Mark Ingram: Likely to play Saturday

Ingram (calf), who is listed as questionable for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Titans, is slated to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Ingram missed the Ravens' regular-season finale to rest a tight calf, and after the team's bye, he was unable to take part in the first two sessions of this week. Having said that, he was limited Thursday, which seemingly will be enough for him to be out there Saturday. Such a decision will be made about 90 minutes before the 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, but ultimately it remains to be seen how much work he'll be able to handle. Gus Edwards is next up for touches behind Ingram.

January 9, 2020 12:26 PM EST

Mark Ingram: Logs limited practice

Coach John Harbaugh said that Ingram (calf) was limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: With regard to the running back's status for Saturday's playoff game against the Titans, Harbaugh noted "we'll see how it goes." Based on that comment, it seems likely that Ingram will be officially listed as questionable for Saturday night's 8:15 ET kickoff. If Ingram ends up limited or out this weekend, Gus Edwards would be in line to see added touches out of Baltimore's backfield, as was the case in Week 17, when he logged 21 carries for 130 yards while subbing for Ingram.

January 9, 2020 10:02 AM EST

Mark Ingram: Returns to practice Thursday

Ingram (calf) is participating in Thursday's practice, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Ingram has resumed participating in on-field drills for the first time since injuring his calf Dec. 22. According to Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun, the veteran running back worked on the side during the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media. The extent of Ingram's practice activity won't be officially disclosed until the Ravens release Thursday's injury report, but even a limited session would represent notable progress heading into Saturday's NFC divisional matchup against the Titans.

January 9, 2020 8:49 AM EST

Mark Ingram: Still not practicing Wednesday

Ingram (calf) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Ingram hasn't practiced in any official capacity since sustaining a calf injury Week 16, the severity of which kept him sidelined for Dec. 29's meaningless regular-season finale. While it's possible that the Ravens are taking a cautious approach to the veteran running back's recovery, he'll almost certainly need to resume on-field work in at least a limited capacity Thursday for any chance of suiting up against the Titans on Saturday. In the event that Ingram is forced to sit out Saturday's divisional-round tilt, offensive coordinator Greg Roman said that Gus Edwards, who carried the ball 21 times for 130 yards Week 17, will be ready to receive "lots of action," per Zrebiec.
