After fearing that Alvin Kamara would miss games for the New Orleans Saints in 2022, it looks as though the team could avoid that discipline. 

During the Pro Bowl in Las Vegas, New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was arrested for battery charges and up until now, it appeared that he was going to miss a handful of games as a result.

According to Adam Schefter, however, the former third-round pick might not be disciplined this year.

While discussing Kamara’s value in fantasy football on ESPN, Schefter noted that the case might not be decided in time for the 2022 season.

“The status of that case is not going to affect his availability this season,” Schefter said in the video linked below.

Alvin Kamara might not get suspended this year.

What this could mean, however, is that while Kamara might go unpunished this year, the 2023 season could be when he serves his suspension if one ends up happening.

As fans had prepared themselves to see a lot of Mark Ingram in the backfield, they were also heavily debating who would be the RB3 and then be promoted to RB2 while Kamara was out. That might not be the case if Kamara doesn’t serve any suspension.

If Dwayne Washington makes the team as the RB3, he can continue to be the special teams contributor that he’s proven he can excel at. He won’t be tasked with stepping into the offense and making a huge impact on offense.

Kamara is a huge piece of the Saints’ offense and we saw last year how badly things can go without him on the gridiron. His ability to make an impact as a rusher and as a pass-catcher is what makes the guy so dangerous. The offense is on another level when Kamara is a part of it.

This isn’t official yet, of course, but hearing Schefter say that Kamara might not be punished this year is good news for the offense.
