The New Orleans Saints get ready for a tough matchup against the 7-2 Tennessee Titans in Week 10, and Wednesday's practice brought some troubling news for Alvin Kamara.

Alvin Kamara Injury Update

Kamara's Week 10 status is immediately called into question after the star running back missed Saints practice with a knee injury on Wednesday.

Saints beat writer Nick Underhill calls the injury a "day-to-day" situation, but something fantasy managers will definitely monitor.

Mark Ingram Fantasy Outlook

This may not be the prime Mark Ingram who made the Pro Bowl for the Saints in 2017, but the team is clearly still interested in getting him involved, feeding him 15 carries and 7 targets in his first two games.

Kamara has been an absolute workhorse this year, averaging 18.3 carries plus 5.5 targets per game. Ingram may not get the same kind of massive workload if Kamara sits, but he'd be the obvious favorite to soak up most of that volume.

The likelihood of a 20-opportunity outing would make Ingram a great fantasy play, even in a tough matchup against the Titans.

Fantasy football managers should head to the waiver wire and pick Ingram up now, just in case Kamara does sit.
