Saints RB Alvin Kamara (foot) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday. Kamara said that he would "be alright" and that it's the same foot injury that he's been playing through the last couple of weeks, per beat writer Mike Triplett. Latavius Murray would obviously get a huge bump if Kamara can't play.
The sides weren't that far apart on an extension before things went sideways, Pelissero added. It sounds like the missed practices were because of a back issue and not necessarily contract related. It's a situation worth watching but it looks like Kamara has a good chance to stay a Saint.
Kamara’s entering the final year of his rookie deal, set to make $2.133 million this year. While injuries affected him last year, he should still be in line for a solid payday, even if the Christian McCaffrey deal with the Panthers (four years, $64 million) skewed the scale.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) took full practice reps again Friday. Kamara is expected to face the Falcons. He's a solid RB1 in his first game back even though it sounds as if the Saints want to give Latavius Murray more touches moving forward.
