METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Mark Ingram says he's not concerned about making his third season the first one in which he lives up to his Heisman hype.

He does, however, intend to be a much greater factor in New Orleans' offense.

Hampered by injuries for much of his first two NFL seasons, Ingram says he's now as healthy as he's been since turning pro. Coach Sean Payton says now that Ingram is fit and experienced, the Saints are expecting a lot from him.

Ingram is the only Heisman Trophy winner in Alabama history and was the second of 2 Saints first-round picks in 2011. Ingram says he's not as worried about fan expectations as being a great teammate who executes whatever coaches ask him to do, be it running, receiving or pass-blocking.
