Due to a rib injury, Saints star lvin Kamara will not play against the Buccaneers in Week 2.

In Week 2, when they play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the New Orleans Saints will not have their star running back Alvin Kamara with them. The team has officially ruled him inactive. The 27-year-old is hurting his ribs, which made it hard for him to practice on Wednesday and kept him out of practice on Thursday and Friday. At first, he wasn’t sure if he would be able to play in this NFC South game. The NFL Network says that Kamara is having trouble with his rib cartilage.



Since Kamara won’t be playing on Sunday, veteran Mark Ingram will get more work to do. Even though he was limited all week because of an ankle injury, Ingram is going to play in this game, even though he was also listed as questionable. In Week 1, Kamara was on the field for 62% of New Orleans’ offensive snaps. He ran the ball nine times for 39 yards and caught three of his four targets for just seven yards. On the other hand, Ingram ran four times for 22 yards.


The Saints hope to keep their winning streak going against the Buccaneers. Since Tom Brady moved to Tampa, the Saints have won all four regular-season games against the Bucs and outscored them 117-53. Even so, the Bucs might have a better chance of breaking the streak in Week 2 in New Orleans if they don’t have a dynamic player like Kamara.


Losing Alvin Kamara is a nightmare scenario that is happening way too early in the season. Mark Ingram is a good replacement for Mark Ingram because the Saints running backs have done well in three of their last four games. The feeling is that Ingram will lead the way for New Orleans, and he may even have the game script on his side. You can worry about his age or how well he plays, but Ingram’s biggest problem will be stopping Taysom Hill from taking touches away from him and Alvin Kamara like he did last week. So, Ingram is still one of the top 30 Fantasy options, but he is not a must-start. I’d rather put Cordarrelle Patterson or Melvin Gordon on the field first. — Dave Richard, who works for CBS Sports Fantasy,
