Alvin Kamara met with Commissioner Roger Goodell Wednesday, and it is reported to have been a good meeting. That said, a suspension is still looming.

The do-it-all running back for the New Orleans Saints had his long-awaited meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss the Las Vegas nightclub fight that resulted in Alvin Kamara getting arrested. Now, both Kamara and the Saints wait to see how long of a suspension is on the horizon.

Fortunately for Kamara and the Saints, the meeting reportedly went very well and was a success. So much so that the Saints even expect Kamara to be right back on the practice field.

Despite the reported successful meeting, a suspension is still expected. Going in to today, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that the length of the suspension, whether it be a two, four, or six-game etc. all depending on how this meeting went. If these reports are to be believed, and Jeff Duncan is as relaible as they come, then it doesn't appear the Saints offense will be missing Kamara for long.

Of course they may not miss him much regardless with the free agent signing of Jamaal Wililams, whose 17 touchdowns led the NFL a year ago, and rookie Kendre Miller. They should be able to hold down the fort from a rushing perspective until Kamra returns, even if they can't bring everything to the table that Kamara can.

At the end of the day, it appears that this saga with Alvin Kamara may be coming to a conclusion. Now, the New Orleans Saints and their fans just have to play the waiting game to see just how many games their star running back will be absent for. In a world of drama surrounding NFL running backs, this is one layer that many will be thankful is over with.
