    News

    Kamara ran for 24 yards on four carries and corralled eight of 10 targets for 50 receiving yards during Sunday's 26-9 loss to Atlanta.

    Impact

    The ground attack was practically nonexistent for New Orleans in Week 10, as Kamara and Latavius Murray combined for just 36 yards on nine attempts against a Falcons defense that had conceded more than 150 team rushing yards to Seattle during its last game Oct. 27. Kamara was able to compile double-digit targets for the second time this season, but the continued lack of rushing production is perplexing, as he has not exceeded 70 rushing yards since Week 1 and possesses just one score on the ground all year. Coming into his second game back from knee and ankle injuries that forced him to sit out Weeks 7 and 8, Kamara may once again find trouble getting much going as a rusher with the Saints facing off against a Tampa Bay defense that allowed just 37 combined rushing yards to Cardinals running backs Kenyan Drake and David Johnson on Sunday.

    News

    Kamara (knee/ankle) practiced fully Thursday.

    Impact

    Shortly after Kamara told Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune that he's "ready to play" Sunday against the Falcons, the Saints revealed he upgraded from limited participation Wednesday to all activity one day later. With his knee and ankle injuries in the rearview mirror, Kamara can turn his focus to an Atlanta defense that has allowed 128.9 yards from scrimmage per game and nine touchdowns to running backs in eight contests this season.

    News

    Kamara (ankle) is expected to be ready to play Week 10 against the Falcons.

    Impact

    Kamara received commendations for the quality of his practice session Wednesday, per Mike Triplett of ESPN.com, though the running back was officially listed as a limited participant. That's been the case on multiple occasions in past weeks, and Kamara ended up not suiting up, but it's looking like this week could be different. After two absences and a bye week, Kamara will face an Atlanta defense that's giving up 3.9 YPC to opposing running backs.

    News

    Kamara (knee/ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Impact

    Kamara was limited on the two injury reports prior to logging his second straight absence in the Saints' last contest Week 8 against the Cardinals. While his current standing doesn't appear to indicate he's progressing in his recovery from his injuries, he'll have two more chances to prove his health this week. Latavius Murray is on hand in the event Kamara requires another game off Sunday versus the Falcons.

    News

    Kamara (ankle/knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Impact

    With a Week 9 bye up next, the Saints can play it safe with Kamara and his pair of health concerns with the second half of the campaign in mind. Kamara again will yield lead-back duties to Latavius Murray, who went off for 150 yards from scrimmage and two rushing TDs on 32 touches last Sunday in Chicago.
