The suspension means that Ingram won't be available for the Saints' home games against the Tampa Bay Bucs and Cleveland Browns in Weeks 1 & 2, or road games against the Atlanta Falcons and the New York Giants in Weeks 3 & 4.

The veteran running back is scheduled to earn a base salary of $4 million in the final year of his contract, meaning he will forfeit almost $1 million - and possibly more in bonus money - by missing the four games.

The signing of the order is a formality required by the Consitution whereby the president appoints the elected Prime Minister. The ruling party said it will not nominate their own candidate for the second round, just like in the first round.

New Orleans does have a capable replacement in the electrifying Alvin Kamara, who was named the NFL Rookie of the Year last season.

Ingram will still be permitted to participate in offseason workouts, training camp and the preseason, but he will not be able to practice or play in those first four games. Ingram and Kamara made league history in 2017 by becoming the first backfield teammates to each surpass 1,500 yards from scrimmage. His finest campaign came a year ago, when Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara became the first backfield tandem to each eclipse the 1,500-yard mark with scrimmage yards. He was voted onto the Pro Bowl for the second time last season.

In other Asian markets, Hong Kong's Hang Seng gained 1.26 percent while Japan's Nikkei quoted 0.31 percent surge in early deals. Sectorally, banks, realty, finance and oil and gas gained the most, with the BSE Bankex settling 1.32% higher.

Kamara took on a slightly larger share of the workload down the stretch last season - which could remain the norm even when Ingram returns. The Saints also have a more experienced backup, Jonathan Williams, on the roster.

Ingram, 28, was the Saints' first-round pick (28th overall) in the 2011 NFL draft out of Alabama, where he won the Heisman Trophy in 2009 and helped the Crimson Tide win the national championship.

While placing no blame on the President, he wonders why the President couldn't spare ample time to give the awards to everyone. After the announcement of the National Film Awards winners for 2018, there was much excitement in the air.

It looks like the New Orleans Saints are going to have to start their 2018 season without their leading rusher from 2017 on the field.
