Alvin Kamara (knee) ruled out vs. Cowboys

According to Ian Rapoport on Twitter, New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara has been ruled out for Thursday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys due to a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: 

Alvin Kamara is out for tonight's contest against the Cowboys, putting Mark Ingram back in the reins as the featured back for the Saints. Kamara was able to log a limited practice on Wednesday but did not progress well enough for the team to feel comfortable starting him on a short week. Ingram has proven capable of carrying the load throughout the season and should be in line for a steady diet of touches against the Cowboys regardless of gamescript. Taysom Hill may limit his upside as far as number of carries and goal line opportunities, but the threat of a running quarterback opens up lanes for the running backs more often than not. Ingram is an RB2 with RB1 upside for Week 13.
