The New Orleans Saints will not have star running back Alvin Kamara when they face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2 as the club officially ruled him inactive. The 27-year-old is dealing with a rib injury, which limited him in practice on Wednesday and forced him out of Thursday and Friday’s sessions. He was initially listed as questionable for this NFC South matchup. Specifically, the NFL Network notes that Kamara is dealing with a rib cartilage issue.
With Kamara inactive for Sunday’s matchup, veteran Mark Ingram will be slated for extra work. Despite also being listed as questionable for this matchup, Ingram is going to play after he was limited throughout the week with an ankle injury. Kamara played 62% of New Orleans’ offensive snaps in the Week 1 opener and tallied 39 rushing yards on nine attempts while catching three of his four targets for just seven yards. Meanwhile, Ingram rushed for 22 yards on four carries.
