New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara made his season debut Sunday after serving a three-game suspension for his role in a 2022 fight in Las Vegas, and the offense leaned heavily on him in the 26-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Quarterback Derek Carr, who has been recovering from a shoulder injury, said on Sunday that he wished he could've utilized Kamara more.

Kamara caught 13 balls for 33 yards. Unfortunately, the 33 yards isn't a typo, and, according to the story, was the first time that a player had 13 or more catches and so few yards. The previous record was set by Buccaneers running back James Wilder, a name from Tecmo Bowl days, who had 13 receptions for 71 yards in 1985. The good news for Kamara owners is it looks like he could see a lot of work out of the backfield, especially with Williams on IR.
