Saints RB Alvin Kamara Inactive for Week 2 vs. Buccaneers

Staff report

Saints running back Alvin Kamara will miss Sunday’s NFC South rivalry game against the Buccaneers with a lingering rib injury, the team announced

Kamara had previously been considered questionable to play this weekend after sustaining the injury in New Orleans’s Week 1 victory over Atlanta. He practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday, but did not participate on Thursday or Friday of this week. 

Kamara’s absence will be sorely felt by the Saints as they go up against a talented Bucs defense. The five-time Pro Bowler took on a somewhat subdued workload in last week’s opener (nine carries for 39 yards, three receptions for seven yards), but remains one of the team’s most dynamic offensive players.
