New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is ‘ready to roll’ this weekend, with the 27-year old adamant he will return to action in week 5.
Alvin Kamara was forced to miss the New Orleans Saints fourth game of the season last week, as the Saints travelled to London without their running back who picked up a rib injury in week 3.
Kamara spoke to the media on Wednesday and his eagerness to return to the field this week was obvious for everyone to see.
“This week I’m feeling great, healthy, ready to roll. So, I’m going to be out there.
“The main thing for me is just being able to help the team any way I can. Physically, if there’s a time where I feel like I can’t do that, then I can’t be out there. The last thing I want to do is negatively impact the game.

“Just being all the way healthy and available on Sunday, that’s my biggest thing. So that’s why, obviously last week was kind of up in the air, didn’t go.”
Kamara continued to add that he will be playing with extra padding on his ribs to protect the injury on Sunday during the game against the Seahawks.
The Saints will be glad to have their star RB back in the fold this weekend, with the New Orleans side struggling for form since Kamara’s injury having dropped three games in a row.
