FF Today's Take:After practicing all week, Ingram need to be cleared by an independent doctor in order to clear the final hurdle of the league's concussion protocol. He'll split time with Tim Hightower as the Saints battle the Rams.

New Orleans got good news Wednesday, as coach Sean Payton said running back Mark Ingram will practice Wednesday. Ingram was evaluated for a concussion in last Thursday night's loss to the Panthers.(NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:Ingram is working through the concussion protocol and while the Saints haven't made it official it sounds like he's passed and will likely play this week against the Rams. Ingram is in timeshare with Tim Hightower capping both of their ceilings at a RB2 level.

Saints plan to keep both backs involved moving forward
Mark Ingram finally made his way off the bench three series into Sundayís game against the San Francisco 49ers, one week after he was demoted for fumbling for the second game in a row. Now, after a big game from both, Ingram and Tim Hightower will share the load moving forward, according to Saints coaches.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:It looks like the Saints will stay committed to the run on Sunday as they have for the past two games -- especially since Denver has the NFLís No. 1 passing defense., so both make intriguing fantasy plays.
FF Today's Take:Tim Hightower touched the ball 27 times in Week 8 after Mark Ingram had fumbling issues. Obviously the RBBC is a drain on Ingram's value however both backs have a prime matchup in Week 9 against the 49ers.
