ESPN: Mark Ingram not a lock to make Texans' roster

Houston Texans running back Mark Ingram is not a lock to make the roster, according to Sarah Barshop of ESPN.

What It Means:

There are currently four veteran running backs on the roster: David Johnson, Phillip Lindsay, Rex Burkhead and Ingram. While it's not unheard of for a team to carry four rushers, there's no guarantee all make the 53-man roster at the end of training camp. Ingram is the least versatile of the bunch, so if it comes down to it, he could be the odd man out.

Our models currently project Ingram for 245.08 rushing yards on 50.14 carries with 1.55 touchdowns. They also project him for 14.23 catches on 18.85 targets for 107.65 yards and 0.60 touchdowns.
