The Saints activated running back Mark Ingram from the COVID-19 reserve list Friday. He missed Sunday’s victory over the Jets after testing positive for the virus.
Ingram returned to practice Friday and is expected to play against the Buccaneers.
“I just quarantined, tried to do my best, tried not to spread, tried my best not to see anybody,” Ingram said, via Luke Johnson of The Times-Picayune. “I was just waiting. I was just waiting to get back with the team. I was angry when I couldn’t play Sunday. I woke up Sunday angry.
“But it’s part of what we’re dealing with right now.”
In five games with the Saints, Ingram has 73 touches for 363 yards and one touchdown.
