Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram is assuring fans his calf strain will not jeopardize his availability for the team’s divisional-round playoff matchup. Ingram told reporters Thursday, “I’m smooth, I’m good. I got some time. So, I will be ready for the first playoff game. … I have confidence that I’ll be ready to go.”
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said earlier in the week that an MRI revealed Ingram is suffering from a “mild to moderate” strain and added the team was hopeful he’d be healthy for the postseason. Ingram finished the regular season with 1,018 yards and 10 touchdowns en route to his third Pro Bowl.
Baltimore has already clinched the AFC’s top seed, and if Ingram is unavailable when the Ravens take the field in the divisional round, they’ll still have Lamar Jackson and Gus Edwards to lead the rushing attack.
