Saints running back Mark Ingram missed practice today and is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the Rams.

The Saints haven’t ruled Ingram out, but Mike Triplett of the Times-Picayune reports that Ingram appears unlikely to play Sunday against the Rams.

Ingram, who is battling a heel injury, had his best game yet on Sunday against the Colts, with 14 carries for 91 yards. Ingram is the Saints’ leading rusher with 85 carries for 329 yards and three touchdowns.

Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma missed practice today with a knee injury but is expected to play Sunday.

    That means Chris Ivory will be activated.

    Good thing Belichick didn’t draft this guy and sticked to the The Law Firm.

    Ingram’s been having a good season but the Saints are blessed at RB and the Rams aren’t a strong opponent, so he should take the time to fully recuperate. Get well soon, Mark!! Roll Tide!!

    All because of a bruised heel. Yeah, you’re smart.

    No offense, but Sean Payton really doesn’t give two craps about your fantasy team.

    Ingram is exactly what the Saints need him to.

    Too bad, Ingram was just reaching beast mode this season. But he will be back the following week to assume his role on the team of goal line back and short yardage back. Actually, he is rated as THE best short yardage back in the league. So there, doubters.

    (Why do Patriots fans have to show up everywhere and annoy everyone?)

    I disagree with the all the Ingram is a bust talk that I see in these comments. People complain about his Yards Per Game and Yards Per Carry.

    I’ve watched enough Saints games this year to realize that he shares the load with 2 other backs, and the majority of plays that does get have a couple of things in common that can really help explain his numbers:

    1) He gets carries only when it’s an obvious running situation.

    2) Almost every carry he gets is in a short yardage situation so the play isn’t designed to gain more than three yards.

    A good portion of his carries are short yardage obvious run situations so it’s no wonder that he has a low YPC.

    Yeah because getting repeatedly stuffed on the goal line is what they need .

    Once=repeatedly?

    Dude leads all NFL running backs in short-yardage situations.

    In the future, try to know what you’re talking about before you go spouting off, guy.
