Monday night will be the first game Mark Ingram's played (aside from preseason) since that damn game in Minnesota last season.

We know he'll be a bit rusty, so what are your predictions on his performance?

We've never experienced this before with Ingram, so we don't know, will he come off like a raging bull? Soft? Will Payton limit him or load him?

I think we ease him back into the lineup. Kamara is on fire right now, and I think we mostly continue to ride that hot hand this week with a bit more of the backup RB sprinkled in than the past few weeks as Ingram is obviously a much better choice than what we've had to start the year. If I had to guess I'd say Ingram has around 10 touches this week.

I'd go with about 15 touches as we look to establish more of the running game than in previous weeks.  Say 12 carries 3 catches with Kamara hitting 14 carries and 5 catches.

Very possible, I suppose the driving factor will be how our defense performs. If they hold up and the game doesn't turn into a shootout then yeah I could certainly see about 15 touches for Ingram as we establish the run. If we are in a high scoring game I think Kamara takes most of the carries, and limits Ingram's touches.

I’d love to see them just pound the rock to show Ingram and our running game is back in full force. Make a statement.

I like all of these comments.

Even though Kamara is hot right now, the guy needs a bit of a break. He's at 91 touches so far, and I think that's too much. If we can get back to wearing down other D's with TWO backs, and keep their legs a bit more fresh, I think the impact will be much greater, as we saw last season.

That said, Payton will do just the opposite, because I swear to God he reads my opinions and does the exact opposite.

I think we'll see a good amount of Ingram. Kamara has been busting his *** these past 4 weeks, and although he has been very productive some rest/splitting carries again will be very good for him and his health

The Redskins have a very physical front and the game is on Monday... I expect Payton to feed Ingram more than most expect to elevate Kamaras exposure to this defense in the trenches.
