According to Underhill, Kamara has not yet exhibited symptoms and is feeling fine.

Kamara would be forced to miss Week 17’s game should he produce a second positive test. 

The Saints reportedly traveled without Kamara for their Week 17 game against the Panthers. 

Kamara, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Saints back in 2017. Kamara was in the final year of his four-year, $3.85 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $977,500 for the 2020 season. 

Kamara was in line to be an unrestricted free agent in 2021 when he agreed to a five-year extension worth $77.133 million this past September. 

In 2020, Kamara has appeared in 15 games for the Saints and rushed for 932 yards on 187 carries (5 YPC) to go along with 83 receptions for 756 yards receiving and 21 total touchdowns.
