Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s smash spot at home for the Falcons. Kamara might cede a bit more work to RB Latavius Murray than he was before the injury, but he remains a high-end RB1. Murray is in the RB3/Flex mix in this week's plus matchup.

Saints HC Sean Payton confirmed that RB Alvin Kamara (knee, ankle) is expected to return for this weekend's game against the Falcons. That's been the belief for a while now, so it was surprising to see Kamara limited in Wednesday's practice. He might cede a bit more work to Latavius Murray on Sunday, but Kamara is right back to RB1 status.

Injury Predictor

Kamara made it through 16 games as a rookie, leaving Week 14 early with a concussion but returning for the following contest. He lost 2 games to a left knee injury at Tennessee in 2016 and took a redshirt for another knee injury at Alabama back in 2012. Kamara comes off an explosive debut with no real signs of durability risk. That area will bear watching, though, if the Saints significantly increase his workloads.
