Saints RB Alvin Kamara Misses Practice on Thursday

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (ribs) did not practice with the team on Thursday, per ESPN’s Field Yates.

Kamara took a step backward Thursday after being limited in Wednesday’s practice which is never a good sign. The five-time Pro Bowler had a rare poor showing in Week 1 that left fantasy owners disappointed and now seems to be in jeopardy of missing Week 2. If Kamara is unable to go, expect Mark Ingram II to be the lead back against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

In Week 1, Kamara attempted nine rushes for 39 yards along with three receptions for seven yards. Keep an eye out for Kamara’s status on Friday as it will prove pivotal for his chances to play Sunday.
