Mark Ingram hopes to return for playoffs

The Ravens may park plenty of starters in Week 17 anyway, but it appears the decision on Mark Ingram has been made for them.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the MRI on the veteran running back revealed a calf strain, and there is hope he could return for the playoffs.

A cautious approach is wise, and the fact he has a two-week break before he’d have to come back gives him time to rest and rehab.

The Ravens haven’t declared whether they’d sit starters this week, having already secured the top seed in the AFC playoffs. Coach John Harbaugh said he’d make a decision Monday.

    He won’t be the same when he returns

    Because minor calf strains are routinely career ending/altering. Good call.

  2. Hated seeing him go down.

    He has been a great “two” for the one two punch in their run game.

  3. I suffered a calf strain a few months ago about a week before I was supposed to do an ironman. It took me about 3 weeks to recover. Missed the race as I had a lot of trouble putting weight on my leg. Was not going to make it worse by trying to race for 140.6 miles. And this was without the drs and pt experts that Ingram has access to. Hoping it’s not too bad and he gets it massaged out over the next few weeks.

  4. Mark has been great and if he’s not 100%, Gus the Bus is equally as tough and will be ready to take the load.

    As well as the Ravens have played this year, anything short of a SB win will be disappointing for Baltimore fans. Regardless, what a season to remember thanks to Lamar.
