(WVUE) -

Better late than never. That's what the Saints are saying about Mark Ingram's long awaited arrival back at the facility. He was on the field with the Black and Gold for the first time today for the start of the mandatory mini-camp.

Ingram skipped the off-season workouts, and all three weeks of organized team activities.

He returns to a more crowded backfield with the addition of Boston Scott, and a few other names that will have to pick up the slack for Ingram while he serves his suspension to start the season.

Coach Payton as you'd expect, didn't go into great detail about any conversations with Ingram. But did say he's a welcomed sight on the practice field.

"Good, good. I think he's in good shape. He did well, good seeing him out here," said Payton.

"I'm not really going to say much on the suspension. But I fought it hard, and I don't agree with it, but I'm going to serve my suspension when it's time. Hopefully we're 4-0 when I come back. But like I said, I fought it hard. I don't agree with it, but I'm going to serve my suspension, and I'll be back and I'll be ready," said Mark Ingram.

    The AP preseason poll came out today, and of course Alabama is No. 1. I'm going to breakdown a few teams in my Top 25. This is the 9th year I'm doing an AP poll. Fist off, no shock, I have the Tide in the top spot. Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, doesn't matter who's at QB. Week one they play Louisville in Orlando. Right now they're only 24-point favorites. Georgia holds No. 2 in my poll. Another year of Jake Fromme under center is a great reason to have the Dawgs here. South Carolina ...more>>
