Pro Sports Daily:
New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the second straight week he'll be sidelined with a bruised heel.
The former Heisman Trophy winner was hurt in the final quarter of a 62-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 23. The injury forced Ingram to miss last week's loss to St. Louis.
The Saints will again rely on Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas to carry the load in the backfield.
Ingram has 85 carries for 329 yards and three scores on the season. He has also caught eight passes for an additional 29 yards.

For the second time in a few weeks I caught up with Nick Houllis of BucStop. Make sure to check out their blog on the Bloguin Network, which is pretty much the greatest network in the history of man, and give BucStop some love on twitter. I sure hope we beat them this weekend because I'm getting pretty sick of the Bucs holding the edge over the Saints lately. Another season split...
