Kamara expected to play against Jets

(WVUE) - Alvin Kamara's full participation in practices Wednesday and Thursday would give you the appearance he's ready to go against the Jets. Saints Head Coach Sean Payton would agree with your assessment.

"You go through a full practice and you get examined and today, repeat. I'm probably like you with the specifics. We all anticipate him playing. That's the expectation," said Payton.

A helmet-to-helmet hit by former LSU Tiger Deion Jones knocked Kamara out of the Falcons contest.

The rookie has amassed 1,247 yards of total offense, with11 touchdowns on the season.
