Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports that the Saints have returned RB Alvin Kamara to the active roster. That indicates he's all set to face the Bears on Sunday. We'll watch for any reports to the contrary, but Kamara should be ready for fantasy use. We'll also see just how he splits work with Latavius Murray after being out the past week-and-a-half following a positive COVID test.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara and WR Michael Thomas are officially active for today's game against the Bears. Both were expected to be ready, but it's nice to get confirmation.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero confirms that Saints RB Alvin Kamara (COVID) has a chance to play in Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bears. Kamara would not have been eligible to be cleared for that game had it been scheduled for Saturday. Sunday, though, will mark the requisite 10 days since he tested positive for COVID. Kamara still needs to test negative, remain asymptomatic and get full medical clearance in order to play. RB Latavius Murray is eligible to return to the team mid-week after landing on the COVID list as a close contact of Kamara.

The Saints have placed RB Alvin Kamara on the COVID list after a confirmed positive test. That not only knocks him out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. It almost certainly means he'd miss a Wild Card-round playoff game as well, if New Orleans doesn't reach the top seed in the NFC this weekend. Latavius Murray becomes a strong play for Sunday against Carolina. We'll see about the opening of the playoffs and Kamara's outlook for playoff-long leagues as we head into next week.

Saints beat writer Nick Underhill reports that RB Alvin Kamara is awaiting a 2nd COVID test after an initial positive test. If the 2nd comes back positive as well, Kamara would not only miss Sunday's finale against the Panthers but also the playoff opener if the Saints don't get a 1st-round bye. We'll be tracking this situation for Week 17 as well as playoff leagues. Latavius Murray would obviously become a strong fantasy play in any week that doesn't include Kamara.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (foot) isn’t listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He was limited on Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday but a full participant on Friday. Kamara should be a full-go for this weekend’s game against the Falcons. QB Taysom Hill likely lowers his pass-catching ceiling, but Kamara could get a boost in rushing volume. He remains an elite fantasy play.
