The New Orleans Saints have a chance to play spoiler on Sunday afternoon in an exciting matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. NFL insider Ian Rapoport has revealed the Week 12 statuses for a few of head coach Dennis Allen's top players, like Alvin Kamara, Cam Jordan and Marshon Lattimore.

Kamara is expected to suit up in Week 12 despite battling an illness for the past week. The veteran running back did miss practice on Thursday, but returned as a full participant on Friday. Kamara has paced the Saints' offense with a team-high 896 yards from scrimmage this year.
Jordan finds himself in a similar boat as Kamara. The seven-time Pro Bowler was a limited participant in practice this past week due to an eye issue. He is going to give it a go on Sunday, though, after missing the first game of his 12-year career in Week 11. Jordan has logged 5.5 sacks on the season.
It isn't all good news for New Orleans as Lattimore will not be making his return to the field on Sunday. The 26-year-old cornerback has been sidelined since Week 6 with an abdomen injury. He did return to practice this week and is reportedly "progressing well," so keep an eye on his status for Week 13.
Staying healthy will be crucial for a New Orleans squad (4-7 record) that has its eyes set on getting back in the NFC playoff race. The Saints enter Sunday listed as 8.5-point road underdogs against the 49ers, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. They have odds set at +340 to pull off a surprising upset.
