Kamara had nine carries for 39 yards and three catches for seven yards. He had two touches in the fourth quarter — a reception for 15 yards and a catch that resulted in a 10-yard loss.
So now it’s time to watch the injury report in advance of a Week Two showdown against the Buccaneers. The Saints are 4-0 in the regular season against Tampa Bay in the Tom Brady era.
