Alvin Kamara ruled out for Sunday

The Saints won’t have running back Alvin Kamara in the lineup against the Bears on Sunday.

Kamara is dealing with an ankle injury and there was reason to be pessimistic about his chances of playing after he missed all three of the team’s practices this week. He didn’t look his best against the Jaguars last weekend after being listed as questionable and the team has a bye in Week Nine, so there may not be a major rush to get him back in the lineup.

Latavius Murray will be the top back for the Saints with Kamara sidelined.

The Saints have also ruled out tight end Jared Cook. He’s also dealing with an ankle injury and joined Kamara as an observer during this week’s practices. Josh Hill and Brian Parker are the team’s other tight ends.

  1. Thanks Mark Ingram!
    (and ESPECIALLY his AGENT! for the quick signing without the Saints getting a chance to counter-offer. the Saints original offer was $14+ mill…he signed for $15+ mill…WOW ! ! ! you REALLY BROKE THE BANK ! ! !)

  2. If the Saints somehow pull out a W, they should give Payton coach of the year right now!

  3. Murray can still run, and Mike can still catch a ball. Bear D is ridiculously tough but that doesn’t mean Saints can’t come out on top in a low scoring game of field goals. Both defenses are good. If anything, Bears don’t have the offense to compete.

    I’d take the +ONE MILLION DOLLARS deal, who wouldn’t?!?!

    You’re not understanding, Ingram (his Agent, actually) agreed to the deal BEFORE the Saints counter-offered!
    the difference, in NFL money, is not a big deal for the Saints to pony up……

  5. I don’t care if Alvin and Drew are out, this is the Saints not the Packers without Rodgers (or the refs.)

    The Bears better have a fire up their azz on Sunday!

    Well, at least the Bears QB will keep the Saints in the game…

    Trubisky is playing?

    >the difference, in NF

    Why do you attribute Kamari’s injury to Ingrams departure
    Is this some kind of butterfly effect
    How about attribute it to Brees injury leading to a run heavy offense run by Teddy B

  8. @rdb2022
    Kamara was near 50% of touches…after Brees was hurt and the Saints run game became even more prominent, Kamara getting around 80% of the touches, Murray and Taysom Hill and the jet sweepers getting the rest.
    Now, if it was Kamara AND Ingram even with no Brees, Kamara wouldn’t be overused likely not injured, and the Saints Offense WAY MORE diverse.

  9. If the Bears spit the bit on this one they are done….and with Trubisky going, that is a likely possibility….the over under is like 38, I think it could be 28….go under…..Bears have to win

  10. After Ingram signed with Baltimore, the reports out of the NOLA sports scene, is that he wanted out and they had no reason(s) on why. The Saints would have matched the offer but neither Ingram nor his agent would NOT return calls from Loomis, Payton or Brees. Regardless of that:

    Who dat!

    You are making my point that brees injury led to run heavy offense leading to Lamar a taking even bigger workload and getting injury

  12. Latavius Murray is a hoss and was the better of the two Saints RB’s against Jacksonville Sunday. I would not be surprised if he has a monster game. Kamara is great, but Kamara on one leg as he has been for the last couple games is not a huge loss.

  13. “If the Bears spit the bit on this one they are done….and with Trubisky going, that is a likely possibility…”

    The Bears were 3-3 in week 7-8 last season, with Trubisky and finished the season 12-4.

    Someone tell this guy to get a brain.
