Kamara downgraded to DNP at Thursday’s practice

It looks like Alvin Kamara’s rib injury might be more serious than we originally thought.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Alvin Kamara did not participate in the New Orleans Saints’ practice on Thursday due to a rib injury sustained in the Atlanta Falcons game on Sunday, after being a limited participant on Wednesday.

Initially, reports made it look like it was a minor injury that wouldn’t keep AK out for long, but this isn’t a great sign.

As you can see from the injury report, safety Marcus Maye (ankle) and guard Calvin Throckmorton (illness) were upgraded to full participants, which is good news. Paulson Adebo is still out thus far with an ankle injury.

Everyone else remained limited participants.

Also, of note — Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans (calf) was downgraded to a DNP. Tom Brady practiced in full, while Chris Godwin missed practice for the second consecutive day.

The original line opened with the Buccaneers favored by 3.5 points, but that has since dropped to 2.5 points according to DraftKings sportsbook. That line could change again if Kamara continues to miss practice.

Odds/lines subject to change. T&Cs apply. See for details.
