METAIRIE, La. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram has a broken hand.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Monday because the Saints have not disclosed the injury, which was first reported by ESPN. The person says the timeline for Ingram's return remains unclear.
Saints coach Sean Payton, who was asked about the injury on Monday, says he's following his policy of not releasing injury information until the next NFL-required injury report, which for New Orleans this week is Wednesday afternoon.
Ingram gained 104 yards from scrimmage during the Saints' 26-24 loss at Cleveland on Sunday, rushing 11 times for 83 yards with one touchdown and catching three passes for 21 yards. He scored two TDs in Week 1.
