On Tuesday, the NFL announced that New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for a PED violation. The news impacts the Cleveland Browns because the team faces the Saints on the road in Week 2 of the 2018 season.

The Saints still have a solid option at running back, considering Alvin Kamara was a stud last season. But Ingram, who is looking for a new contract, is coming off of a career year in which he rushed for 1,124 yards (4.9 YPC) and 12 touchdowns to go along with 416 yards receiving.
