New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram will sit out Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams due to a bruised heel. Ingram was hurt in the final quarter of last week's 62-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts. He had rushed for a season-high 91 yards on 14 carries before leaving the game in the fourth quarter. The former Heisman Trophy winner at Alabama has 85 carries for 329 yards and three scores on the season, and has also caught eight passes for an additional 29 yards. The absence of Ingram will mean an increased workload for Pierre Thomas. The Saints on Friday also activated running back Chris Ivory from the physically unable to perform list. Ivory led the team in rushing with 716 yards in 12 games last season. He underwent Lisfranc surgery on his foot in the offseason and had surgery for a sports hernia in early August.
