All three are dealing with knee injuries and all three have been out for a few games now. It’s a big blow to the Saints, as those are probably their three best remaining offensive players.
Kamara, 26, 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 rookie contract when he agreed to a five-year extension worth $77.133 million in September of last year.
