On Friday, New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara and left tackle Terron Armstead will both miss this week with injuries.
In addition, rookie defensive end Payton Turner was previously added to the injured reserve list due to a shoulder injury, and safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson has also been confirmed to be absent.
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton said Alvin Kamara won’t be out for too long, but it’s still a big loss for the offense. Previously, wide receiver Michael Thomas and quarterback Jameis Winston were both out for the season due to injuries.
The New Orleans Saints are currently averaging 314.6 yards per game, ranking only 28th in the league, and second-to-last in passing offense (191.6 yards per game). Alvin Kamara averaged 66.25 rushing yards per game, 38.75 receiving yards per game, and 7 touchdowns, ranking first in the team.
Veteran running back Mark Ingram is expected to replace Alvin Kamara, who is just 19 yards short of breaking the franchise record (6,096 yards).
