New Orleans Saints running back Chris Ivory was updated today to active/physically unable to perform from reserve/physically unable to perform. This means Ivory is now allowed to practice with the team.

The Saints now have up to 21 days before they have to add him to the active roster. They also have the option to activate him as soon as today.

Rookie running back Mark Ingram bruised his heel in Sunday night's win over the Colts.

His injury status this week could affect when the Saints bring Ivory up from the active/physically unable to perform list to the 53 man roster.
