Alvin Kamara has been the centerpiece of the New Orleans Saints' offense in 2020, especially with the loss of star wide receiver Michael Thomas, who hasn't played since Week 1. After sustaining a foot injury, Kamara's Week 9 status was in doubt.

However, it looks like Kamara will now be on track to play Sunday. The star running back gave us some insight to his condition on Wednesday and fans should be happy about what he had to say.

While Latavius Murray has been performing well alongside Kamara this season, losing the former Tennessee running back for a huge division game against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be a devastating blow. New Orleans is only 0.5 games behind Tampa for the NFC South lead, and having Kamara in this game will be crucial in the Saints taking over the lead.

Despite the positive outlook, this will be a situation to monitor up until game time.
