Alvin Kamara Suffers Concussion vs. Falcons, Ruled Out for Remainder of Game

The New Orleans Saints' running back depth took a hit Thursday, as rookie Alvin Kamara suffered a concussion in the first quarter against the Atlanta Falcons and was subsequently ruled out for the remainder of the game, according to the Times-Picayune's Josh Katzenstein.

After Kamara impressed during his junior season at Tennessee and at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, the Saints made him the No. 67 overall pick in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft in April.

Kamara was an ideal change-of-pace back for the Volunteers, and he was especially good as a pass-catcher in third-down situations.
