In 2017, Ingram rushed for a career-best 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns to earn his second Pro Bowl selection.

Kamara averaged only 7.5 carries per game during his rookie campaign, but that may increase substantially early in the 2018 season with Ingram out of the picture.

Kamara has little experience as the lead back in an offense, even dating back to his time at Tennessee, but he'll likely be leaned to help eat touches while Ingram is out.

To maintain Kamara's diverse portfolio, though, the Saints will have to discover a temporary complement for Ingram. But if the Saints want to roll with their electric runner in Kamara, it's hard to imagine that would be bad thing. Coach Sean Payton generally prefers to split the backfield duties, so it won't be surprising if Trey Edmunds, Boston Scott, Jonathan Williams or Daniel Lasco (neck) sees a jump in snaps as well.

But, we would only like to talk about how Deepika has made it hard for us to take eyes off her with her appearance this year. The Met Gala is attended by the who's who of NY society and most of Hollywood celebrities are also seen at the event.

I'm anticipating the Saints adding a veteran tailback in the meantime.

The Saints' Mark Ingram is heading into a contract year, and Tuesday brought news that it will start off in one of the worst ways possible: on a four-game suspension. He is permitted to practice and play for the Saints in the preseason. It's a business at the end of the day.

But since then, Ingram has switched agents and the NFL Network reported Ingram hasn't been around the team facility for offseason workouts and won't be around for organized team activities later this month.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Ingram is heading into his eighth season - all with the Saints - after being taken with the 28th overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Alabama.

I'm still stunned to write "Mark Ingram" and "suspension" in the same sentence.
