The Saints made a surprising move on Wednesday, dumping linebacker Clint Ingram on the day he was supposed to come off the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. Ingram was coming back off a knee injury, and Monday Sean Payton said Ingram was expected to begin practicing today.
GM Mickey Loomis said the team made the move because Ingram wasn’t going to be ready to help the Saints this year. Ingram had suffered the injury while with Jacksonville, but the Saints took a chance on him as a possible replacement for Scott Fujita, who signed with Cleveland.
Now with Ingram out of the way, the team will stick with Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Danny Clark at the position.
