Sean Payton confirmed that running back Mark Ingram is not expected to participate in any of the New Orleans Saints’ organized team activities until the mandatory veteran minicamp in June, apparently because the Pro Bowler is heading into the final year of his contract.
It was Ingram’s decision to train independently in Florida and does not appear to be related to Ingram’s four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. News of his absence was first reported by the NFL Network.
Ingram, 28, also switched from longtime agent Joel Segal to new agents Paul Bobbitt and David Jones this offseason.
I might have to talk to somebody about that, the Yo-Yo Ma-loving Carter said before what can’t be called a coincidence. I don’t know if that would be a great time for classical music. I would be down with it.
On Tuesday, Walker scored the game-winning run against the Red Sox.
The Yankees snapped a two-game losing streak and had a chance to stay atop the American League East over the Red Sox, with whom they started the day tied.
Just a good hitter, Boone said. Always has been. Especially left-handed. More good at-bats (Saturay).Through the winning, he’s had a big hand in a lot of it. Another one (Saturday) for him. Not surprising, knowing the quality of at-bat that he gives us it seems like day in and day out now.
Walker hit.163 through his first 21 games and watched top prospect Gleyber Torres take his job at second base. Since then, Walker has been splitting time with Tyler Austin at first base. He pitched in at third base Friday.
Walker, who has three other career walk-off hits, is 9-for-25 (.360) in his last nine games.
