Ingram sustained a fractured thumb earlier this season but after returning to full practice on Wednesday, he expects to feature against the Lions.
"I'm ready to go full go, 100%, full tilt," Ingram said, the Times-Picayune reports.
"I've been getting all the reps in practice. They haven't babied me or eased me into practice. So I've been doing everything, catching, running, blocking, everything."
Coach Sean Payton has not yet confirmed that Ingram, who led all NFL starters with 6.0 yards per carry prior to his injury, will feature.
