"He's been sharp," Payton said of Ingram, via the Associated Press. "Fortunately, with regards to his procedure, I don't expect it being a long period of time."
Payton labeled Ingram's status "week to week," adding that the running back could not play with a cast because the fracture was displaced.
A source close to Ingram has told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport the fourth-year pro is expected to miss about a month's worth of action.
Ingram sustained the injury in the first quarter of the loss in Cleveland, but played the rest of the game while clearing 100 yards from scrimmage.
"It's obviously impressive that he played that long with it," Payton said, via ESPN.com. "You could see on film that his exchanges were a little different and how he was taking the ball. But he's a tough player."
