Practices fully Monday

Ingram (knee) was a full participant in Monday's practice.

After developing swelling in his knee following the Saints' 40-29 loss to the Eagles in Week 11, Ingram was unable to gain clearance on a short week for a Thanksgiving Day game against the Bills. Though he was being treated as a game-time call leading up to the Saints' eventual 31-6 loss, Ingram was ultimately inactive for the contest along with top running back Alvin Kamara (knee), which allowed Tony Jones (16 carries for 27 yards) to lead an unproductive ground attack. Now that he's practicing fully to begin Week 13 prep, Ingram is in the clear to play Thursday against the Cowboys, but what his role looks like will be contingent on the status of Kamara, who has missed the past three contests. Kamara took a step forward by practicing on a limited basis Monday, but he may need to maintain or increase that level of activity by Wednesday to put himself on a path to reclaim lead duties out of the New Orleans backfield this week.
