Saints sign Latavius Murray to practice squad

Hopefully this doesn’t mean Alvin Kamara’s rib injury is serious.

The New Orleans Saints have signed running back Latavius Murray to the team’s practice squad, Field Yates reported on Tuesday.

The ninth-year tailback has played for the Las Vegas Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, Saints and most recently the Baltimore Ravens in his career.

He has 5,492 career rushing yards and 49 touchdowns on 4.2 yards a tote. Last year in Baltimore, he ran for 501 yards and 6 TDs.

He last played for New Orleans in 2020.

It was recently reported that Alvin Kamara was dealing with a rib injury.

Hopefully, Murray’s signing is more about depth than it is this being a serious injury. But we likely won’t know the severity of it until the injury report comes out Wednesday.
