Kamara took a backseat to Mark Ingram in the latter's first game of the season, touching the ball just nine times. [...]]]> 5331289 Mon, 15 Oct 2018 11:21:15 EDT <![CDATA[Finishes with nine touches]]> Kamara rushed six times for 24 yards and caught three of four targets for 15 yards in Monday night's 43-19 win over the Redskins.

Kamara averaged over 18 touches per game entering Monday's contest, but the lopsided scoreline coupled with the return of backfield mate Mark Ingram resulted in him seeing just half of that mark. Additionally, it was Ingram who scored twice from inside the two-yard line, with Taysom Hill scoring from the one to boot. While it may have been a disappointing output for Kamara heading into the Saints' bye week, he and Ingram showed last year they could both be wildly productive working in tandem, and Kamara will surely be needed more than he was Monday in the vast majority of games.

An injury that has limited wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr.’s (knee) practice reps throughout the first quarter of the regular season worsened this week, with the veteran wideout not participating in any practice session leading up to Monday Night Football. The Saints have already ruled Ginn out, and will likely turn to new additions Cameron Meredith (knee) and Tre’Quan Smith to fill in for him. Meredith was, along with running back Alvin Kamara (knee), listed as limited throughout the week as the team carefully managed their practice activity. Smith was one of the most-productive rookie receivers during the preseason but has struggled to get on the same page with quarterback Drew Brees]]> 5323060 Sat, 06 Oct 2018 21:00:02 EDT Saints Wire

Running back Alvin Kamara was limited all week in practice with a knee injury, but he has no injury designation for Monday night’s game against Washington. This means that he’ll definitely play.

Kamara's practice reps were restricted throughout the week, but it turns out the Saints were just exercising caution with their stud back. They did the same thing prior to last week's game, so it could become a recurring theme as the season progresses. Still, the return of Mark Ingram from a four-game suspension could finally slow down his hot start to the season a tad, but it not expected to significantly impact Kamara's standing as a must-play option each week.

What makes Kamara so difficult to play against is his dynamism. Besides for leading the NFL in rushing touchdowns, Karmara also has the third-most catches with 35 for 365 yards. The Saints star is also eighth in the league with 275 rushing yards.

So how can the Redskins actually stop such a dynamic player like Kamara? Well they plan on doing tackling him by committee]]> 5322094 Fri, 05 Oct 2018 17:00:02 EDT Redskins Wire

He thrived in that role, without question, but getting Ingram back will be huge for the entire Saints offense. He’s rushed for at least 1,000 yards in each of the past two seasons, scoring 22 total touchdowns.

He’s set to return on Monday night when the Saints take on the Redskins, and needless to say, it was hard being away from the team]]> 5321737 Fri, 05 Oct 2018 12:06:01 EDT Saints Wire
