One of the New Orleans Saints’ key players was demoted after the latest injury report because star running back Alvin Kamara did not attend the team’s Thursday afternoon practice.
Kamara, who sustained a rib injury in the Saints’ Week 1 win over the Atlanta Falcons, was spotted briefly in uniform on the sidelines as his teammates progressed through open practice.
Against the Falcons, Kamara converted his 12 touches into 46 yards from scrimmage. It’s unclear what specific game the injury occurred in, but Kamara appeared to be out with the team’s athletic training staff late in the fourth quarter.
Outside of Kamara, Thursday’s injury report was mostly the same for the Saints.
Paulson Adebo (ankle), who started outside the corner, continued to miss practice, raising doubts about his availability for the week two game against Tampa.
Safety Marcus Maye (ankle) and offensive lineman Calvin Throckmorton (illness) were both upgraded to full participation status.
Quarterback Jameis Winston (back), defensive end Cameron Jordan (hip), receiver Tre’Quan Smith (shoulder), running back Dwayne Washington (hamstring), running back Mark Ingram (ankle), and defensive back Alontae Taylor (hip) were all limited .
Quarterback Tom Brady returned to practice for the Buccaneers after a day off Wednesday.
Receiver Mike Evans (Wade) was downgraded to non-participant status on Thursday after being restricted on Wednesday. He is one of several Buccaneers receivers to struggle with injuries including Chris Godwin (hamstring, DNP), Julio Jones (knee, DNP), Russell Gage (hamstring, restricted) and Breshad Perriman (knee, restricted).
