NEW ORLEANS (AP) – The New Orleans Saints scratched the limping running back Mark Ingram while left tackle Terron Armstead returned to the lineup against Buffalo Thursday night.

The Bills listed the recipient and sender Isaiah McKenzie as a healthy scratch.

Ingram came into the match as questionable due to a knee injury that limited him in training this week. Defender Alex Armah is a healthy scratch as the Saints have decided to go with a backfield by Tony Jones Jr., Dwayne Washington and newly acquired Adam Prentice, who was elevated from the training team.

New Orleans had already ruled out running back Alvin Kamara (knee), right tackle Ryan Ramzcyk (knee) and defensive ends Marcus Davneport (shoulder) and Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle).

Armstead, who was also listed as doubtful after missing the last two fights with knee and shoulder injuries, had returned to training this week.

Reserve quarterback Ian Book was the other Saint’s scratch.

All of Bills’ lineup scratches were healthy players.

McKenzie, who fumbled a kickoff return deep into Buffalo territory last week, is inactive due to Marquez Stevenson’s return to the lineup after his activation from injured reserve.

Running back Zack Moss has been scratched with Matt Breida, who got a chance to consolidate his latest production as both runner and receiver out of the backfield.

Also disabled for Buffalo are safety Damar Hamlin, cornerback Cam Lewis, offensive lineman Bobby Hart, defensive tackle Vernon Butler and defensive end Boogie Basham.
