Mark Ingram II, RB (HOU)

Rookie QB could impact production

Ingram could face a Panthers defense geared to stop the run Week 3 after the Browns stacked the box with eight or more defenders 57.1 percent of the time against rookie quarterback Davis Mills, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

The Browns invited Mills to throw, and he completed just eight of 18 passes for 102 yards in the Week 2 loss. When Mills was on the field, Houston's ground game came to a halt, with the team gaining just 27 yards on 14 carries. As the NFL can be a copycat league, expect Ingram and fellow backs Phillip Lindsay, David Johnson and Rex Burkhead to get little room to operate against Carolina.
