METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints are expecting to get receiver Michael Thomas back from injured reserve in time for Sunday's playoff opener against the Chicago Bears. When asked if running back Alvin Kamara could potentially join him, coach Sean Payton said, "We'll see."
The No. 2-seeded Saints (12-4) caught a scheduling break when their game was slated for Sunday afternoon instead of Saturday -- since Sunday is the first day that Kamara will be eligible to return from the reserve/COVID 19 list if he passes all of the COVID protocols throughout the week.
