Saints running back Mark Ingram has broken hand

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram has a broken hand and could miss as much as a month with the injury.

Ingram's loss is expected to hamper the Saints' running game.

"Nothing now," Saints coach Sean Payton said. "We'll evaluate where he's at. Nothing today with regard to specifics."

Ingram has rushed for three touchdowns this season, including one in a loss to the Cleveland Browns with 83 yards on 11 carries.

The Saints will go with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson with Ingram sidelined.
