NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints scratched hobbled running back Mark Ingram, while left tackle Terron Armstead returned to the lineup against Buffalo on Thursday night,

The Bills listed receiver and returner Isaiah McKenzie as a healthy scratch.

Ingram entered the game as questionable because of a knee injury that limited him in practice this week.

Fullback Alex Armah is a healthy scratch as the Saints have decided to go with a backfield of Tony Jones Jr., Dwayne Washington and newly acquired Adam Prentice, who was elevated from the practice squad.

New Orleans already had ruled out running back Alvin Kamara (knee), right tackle Ryan Ramzcyk (knee), and defensive ends Marcus Davneport (shoulder) and Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle).

Armstead, who also was listed as questionable after missing the last two games with knee and shoulder injuries, had returned to practice this week.

Reserve quarterback Ian Book was the other Saints scratch.

All of the Bills’ lineup scratches were healthy players.

McKenzie, who fumble a kickoff return deep in Buffalo territory last week, is inactive because of Marquez Stevenson’s return to the lineup following his activation from injured reserve.

Running back Zack Moss has been scratched with Matt Breida getting a chance to consolidate his recent production as both a runner and receiver out of the backfield.

Also de-activated for Buffalo are safety Damar Hamlin, cornerback Cam Lewis, offensive lineman Bobby Hart, defensive tackle Vernon Butler and defensive end Boogie Basham.

Petras back as starting QB for Iowa in Big Ten title game

Spencer Petras will be the starting quarterback when No. 15 Iowa plays second-ranked Michigan in the Big Ten championship game on Saturday night.

Petras was listed first on the depth chart released at the start of the week, and coach Kirk Ferentz made it official Tuesday.

Petras started every game last year and the first nine games this season. He missed two full games with an injured right (throwing) shoulder before replacing Alex Padilla after halftime of last week's 28-21 win at Nebraska.

"The way I see it, I got hurt, Alex stepped in and did a really good job," Petras said. "I just think at this time of year, it’s not as much of a competition. That takes place in fall camp. It’s more who can help the team win the best that week. When I was hurt, that was certainly Alex. It seems right now that it’s me."

Ferentz said it was a "gut feeling" that prompted him to put Petras in the game with Iowa trailing the Cornhuskers 14-6 at half last Friday.

"I thought he did a good job," Ferentz said. "And he’s done a lot of good things over two years. We haven’t forgotten about that at all."

Petras was 7 of 13 for 102 yards, had the game-winning 2-yard touchdown dive in the fourth quarter and had a critical third-down completion for a first down on the previous possession when Iowa tied the game on a field goal.

"It’s definitely a lot of fun to get back out there," Petras said. "No one’s goal is to be on the bench. So yeah, it felt good to be back out there."

Petras was 6-2 as the starter last season, and he won his first six starts this season. But Petras hurt his shoulder in the 27-7 loss at Wisconsin on Oct. 30 and struggled the first three series at Northwestern the following week. Padilla replaced him and led the Hawkeyes to a 17-12 win, and he was the starter in wins over Minnesota and Illinois.

"I think it’s similar with the confidence they both play with," center Tyler Linderbaum said. "Maybe their voices are different, but that’s about it. Other than that, they both play with high confidence. The team has trust in both of them, and whoever is out there is going to make plays."

Petras has completed 137 of 236 passes for 1,532 yards this season, with nine touchdowns against six interceptions. Padilla has completed 45 of 97 for 598 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception.

"One thing we wanted to make sure Alex understood two games ago, whenever Spencer was healthy, was we didn’t want him looking over his shoulder," Ferentz said. "Same thing for Spencer. Whoever is in there is going to play. We don’t want a guy looking over his shoulder, start that situation. It’s not good for anybody."

Petras said he’s "100 percent" healthy.

"It just takes me a little while longer to get warmed up," he said. "Once I’m warm, I have no pain, nothing."

Petras said his relationship with Padilla hasn’t changed.

"He’s a great dude, we’re still friends," Petras said. "Business is business. But off the field, we’re all good."

Ferentz has said it greatly benefits the Hawkeyes to have two quarterbacks who have proved to be capable.

"At any given moment, any player can be out on the field," Petras said. "I was preparing like I was starting on Friday, and I’ll prepare the same way Saturday."
