Details: The report comes from Mike Florio (PFT), who notes that the league will probably wait to finalize a suspension until the legal process has been completed.
- Kamara is facing felony battery charges for a fight he got into in Las Vegas, on Pro Bowl weekend. His next hearing is scheduled for August.
Impact: If Kamara is suspended for the first six weeks of the season, the Saints will be without their top playmaker against the Falcons, Buccaneers, Panthers, Vikings, Seahawks, and Bengals.
NO RB Depth: Mark Ingram figures to start in place of Kamara during the suspension. With Tony Jones Jr. and Dwayne Washington providing additional depth.
RB Market: The Saints are expected to add a running back — they’ve already visited with David Johnson and could kick the tires on Jalen Richard, Devontae Booker, and Alex Collins.
- A trade for Browns RB D’Ernest Johnson, who is apparently a “prime training camp trade candidate,” could also be explored.
