Alvin Kamara (COVID-19) tweeted Thursday "see y’all Sunday."
07 January 2021
Kamara is ineligible to rejoin the team in person before Sunday morning — the Saints play the Bears at 4:40 PM ET — but he has been practicing digitally. This is not a joke. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Kamara is participating "remotely via TVU networks technology." Kamara has a "transceiver," a "live video decoder." Coach Sean Payton is even mic'd up so he can "guide Kamara through his plays and prep him as if he were actually practicing." All of this, of course, is contingent on Kamara remaining negative for the coronavirus, but every sign points toward him returning after missing Week 17.
