Ingram inks deal with Texans

March 11, 2021

After being cut by Baltimore in January, three-time Pro Bowl running back Mark Ingram signed with the Houston Texans on Thursday afternoon.

Ingram is two years removed from rushing for 1,018 yards in his first season with the Ravens. However, he fell out of favor with the Ravens, toting the ball just 50 times before suffering an ankle injury in Week 6.

In 11 games, Ingram, who also missed a game on the COVID-19 list, had just 349 yards and two scores on 78 touches.

Ingram, 31, will join a Texans team that cut Duke Johnson two weeks ago.

He will certainly play second fiddle to David Johnson, who is entering his age 30 season, coming off 691 rushing yards in his first season in Houston.

After poor front office moves, the Texans will not pick until the third round, but with two aging running backs at the tip of the depth chart, they will likely look to make a move in the draft.

Ingram likely doesn’t serve as more than a handcuff to Johnson in fantasy leagues.
