The New Orleans Saints take on the Dallas Cowboys at the Caesars Superdome in Week 13 of the 2021 NFL season.

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram II was placed on the Reserve/Covid-19 list Wednesday.

Ingram's listing was one of several posted on the NFL transaction wire for the Saints (5-7), who will play the New York Jets (3-9) on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Also for New Orleans, defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson was designated to return from injured reserve, and guard James Carpenter and tackle Jerald Hawkins were added to the practice squad.

Ingram, the Saints' all-time leader in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns, played in the team's most recent game, a 27-17 loss to Dallas on Dec. 2. He becomes the second Saint to join the Reserve/Covid-19 list this week; defensive end Cameron Jordan was placed on the list Monday. Ingram, the Saints' second-leading rusher, has 233 yards and a touchdown on 55 carries in five games with New Orleans this season.

Gardner-Johnson is poised to return to the field after missing the last four games. He last played Nov. 7, against Atlanta.
