Saints RB Alvin Kamara says he's 'good to go' against Jets

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees throws in the fourth quarter during the game between the Washington Redskins and New Orleans Saints at the Superdome on Sunday

Saints running back Alvin Kamara said earlier this week that he expects to be in the lineup against the Jets in Week 15 after suffering a concussion last Thursday and he appears to be on track to do exactly that.

Kamara (concussion) has been cleared for Sunday's game against the Jets, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Ingram can shoulder a bigger load for the Saints if Kamara is forced to miss more time, although the offense will likely suffer. Even in the wee hours after the Falcons game, Kamara tweeted that he would be "right back at it" for the following week. However, it's still unclear as to if he passed all of the steps. Saints Head Coach Sean Payton would agree with your assessment. We all anticipate him playing. The third-round draft pick from the University of Tennessee has 1,247 total yards and 11 total touchdowns and is now the man to beat for Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. He's second in the National Football League in yards from scrimmage with 1,017 yards, and he's only the third rookie in National Football League history to surpass 600 yards receiving and 600 yards rushing. Maybe too big of one yet, because the Saints will meet the Falcons the next week. Beyond that, Ginn has been held scoreless for five straight games and will look to get in the endzone against a below-average Jets pass defense. The Jets have also allowed the 10th fewest points to opposing running backs, but both Kamara and Ingram have been sensational all season, particularly in the Superdome.
