Mark Ingram suspended first four games of 2018 season for PEDs

Mark Ingram rushed for a career-high 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns last season

Saints running back Mark Ingram is suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league's performance enhancing drug policy, according to multiple reports. Kamara was also a Pro Bowler last season after rushing for 728 yards and eight touchdowns while also catching 81 passes for 826 yards and five more scores. If Ingram's suspension remains intact, the seven-year veteran would miss home outings with the Buccaneers and Browns and road games with the Falcons and Giants. He also earned his second Pro Bowl bid last season after rushing for career-highs with 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The veteran running back is scheduled to earn a base salary of $4 million in the final year of his contract, meaning he will forfeit almost $1 million - and possibly more in bonus money - by missing the four games.

It was a huge year for the 28-year-old running back, who seems to be getting better with age. He was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft and has remained with the team ever since.

Ingram is coming off his two most productive campaigns, breaking the 1,000 rushing yard mark in both campaigns while playing in every game over that span. The Saints also have Trey Edmunds, Jonathan Williams and Daniel Lasco in the backfield to go along with former Louisiana Tech running back Boston Scott, who was selected in the sixth round of this year's draft.

NBC reported Ingram will be allowed to participate in the Saints' offseason workouts, training camp and preseason but will not be able to practice or play in the first four games of the regular season.
