New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is a doubt for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Kamara left last week’s game against the Atlanta Falcons with a rib injury. Saints coach Dennis Allen said on Monday he thought Kamara was “going to be okay,” and Kamara was able to practice in a limited way on Wednesday.
Kamara did not participate in training on Thursday and Friday. He took part in Thursday’s practice warm-up but then quit and was not seen in Friday’s practice.
Allen said Kamara did not aggravate his injury on Wednesday, but he did not elaborate on his star status.
Kamara backup Mark Ingram is also doubtful with an ankle injury, but he’s been training all week. The Saints also recently signed Latavius Murray on the practice squad. Murray played with the Saints during the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
Saints quarterback Jameis Winston is also a questionable case due to a back injury he sustained against the Falcons. He trained all week in a limited way.
Winston said Wednesday he was “healthy and ready to shine” ahead of the game against his former team.
Michael Pittman out against the Jags
The Indianapolis Colts have announced wide receiver Michael Pittman will miss Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Pittman is recovering from a thigh injury sustained Wednesday at practice. Colts head coach Frank Reich, however, was optimistic to see his young star in uniform on Sunday.
Pittman’s state of health has not improved enough in the last few days and quarterback Matt Ryan will be deprived of his main offensive weapon. Pittman led the Colts last week with nine receptions, 121 yards and a touchdown.
The Colts will also be without receiver Alec Pierce and linebacker Shaquille Leonard.
The Bills could be without two big chunks
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis is officially a doubt for Monday night’s game against the Tennessee Titans with an ankle injury. Davis is a late addition to the team’s injury report after being limited in practice on Saturday.
Davis has practiced all week and was warming up normally with the team at the start of Saturday’s session. The Bills’ No. 2 receiver caught four passes for 88 yards and a touchdown in their 31-10 win in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams.
In addition to the absence of Davis, the Bills will have to do without the presence of tackle Ed Oliver. The colossus suffered an ankle injury against the Rams.
