Alvin Kamara, RB (NO)

On track to sit out Week 13

Kamara (knee), who is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Cowboys, won't be available to play, Ian Rapoport and Jane Slater of NFL Network report.

An official word on Kamara's status won't come until the Saints release their inactive list 90 minutes prior to Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff, but fantasy managers should prepare for the star running back to miss a fourth consecutive contest. Heading into Thursday, Kamara appeared to have a decent chance of playing this week after he was listed as a limited participant on practice reports issued Monday through Wednesday, but the Saints may have wanted him to upgrade to full activity before clearing him to return from an MCL sprain. Meanwhile, Mark Ingram practiced fully throughout the week and looks on track to recapture a three-down workhorse role out of the New Orleans backfield after a bout with knee inflammation prevented him from playing in the Saints' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Bills.
