|At 5-11, 225, Jones is a bigger version of Mark Ingram and a power runner between the tackles. He averaged just 2.6 yards per carry on 54 carries in 2021. But in just his third season, he looks to be a guy the Saints want to develop. Don't be surprised if there's short yardage and goal line role for him in this offense at some point, and if Kamara is lost for any lengths of time, expect Jones to step into his spot next to Ingram. I'm putting him on my watch list.
| Alvin Kamara not expected to play|
Rib cartilage injury

|Saints’ RB Alvin Kamara, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a rib injury, is not expected to play vs. the Buccaneers, per source.
Saints’ RB Mark Ingram, also listed as questionable for Sunday due to an ankle injury, is expected to to play vs. the Buccaneers, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Ian Rapoport is reporting that Kamara has a rib cartilage injury and the team will decide this morning if he can play. It doesn't sound likely. Mark Ingram (ankle) is expected to play with Tony Jones and Dwayne Washington playing in a backup role. Ideally, Ingram would be a Flex option for lineup against the Bucs.
| Alvin Kamara missed practice Friday, Questionable|

|A lot of Saints listed as questionable this week. But based on Alvin Kamara not practicing Thursday and Friday, I’d consider him more of a doubtful - while Jameis Winston and Mark Ingram feel more probable. (Mike Triplett on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We should get some clarity on Kamara by Sunday morning but it isn't look great at the moment considering he missed practice Thursday and Friday. Ingram and Tony Jones would be the next running backs up with Latavius Murray waiting to be called up from the practice squad.
| Alvin Kamara misses practice on Thursday|
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 15, 3:53 pm
|Saints RB Alvin Kamara downgraded to a DNP in Thursday’s practice with his rib injury, which puts a question mark on his status for Sunday vs. Tampa Bay. (Mike Triplett on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Kamara was limited in practice Wednesday so his availability for Week 2 (vs TB) in certainly in question. Kamara was in on 62% of the snaps Week 1 with Mark Ingram (33%) and Tony Jones (1%) the only other RBs to see the field. Ingram (ankle) was also limited in practice. Friday's practice report will give us a better indication of their status.
