Kamara has not played since Oct. 13 due to injury. He missed practice on Oct. 11 due to ankle issues, and he suffered a knee injury two days later in a Week 6 contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
He returned to practice on Oct. 24 on a limited basis.
Since being taken in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft, Kamara has been among the most dynamic players in football. The two-time Pro Bowler topped 1,500 scrimmage yards in each of his first two seasons, finding the end zone (via rushing and receiving) a total of 31 times during that span.
The 24-year-old was off to a strong start prior to getting hurt, piling up 373 rushing yards, 276 receiving yards and two total touchdowns in six games.
As Pro Football Focus noted, Kamara has made a habit of breaking tackles and picking up yards in bunches:
That has not only helped the Saints make the playoffs in back-to-back seasons, but it has also paid off for fantasy football owners who have the versatile back on their roster.
Kamara's return will only further solidify New Orleans' status as a Super Bowl contender. The Saints put up 33.5 points per game while going 2-0 in Kamara's absence, extending their winning streak to six games.
New Orleans (7-1) owns a two-game lead over the Carolina Panthers (5-3) in the NFC South.
