While Mark Ingram hasn't gotten off to an explosive 2020 season as he did just one year ago, his 225 rushing yards and two touchdowns still lead the Ravens' backfield in production through Week 6 of the NFL season.

However, Ingram did, unfortunately, suffer a setback after leaving the Baltimore Ravens' Week 6 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles due to an apparent ankle injury. But it appears as though the latest news on his ankle situation is more optimistic than initially feared.

According to Tom Pelissero, Ingram's MRI revealed a high-ankle sprain that isn't considered severe, which is just about the best news you can receive about a running back in this situation.

Better yet, with the Ravens' upcoming Week 7 bye, head coach John Harbaugh even believes that Ingram may not miss a game at all before returning on Nov. 1 in Week 8 against their division rival Pittsburgh Steelers.

While an ankle sprain of any kind is the last thing you want for your leading rusher, it does appear as though the Ravens could dodge a major bullet here thanks to the timing of their bye week.
