SJ - January 2, 2021

Saints running back Alvin Kamara tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday and won't be able to play in New Orleans' regular season finale.  His availability for the first-round of the playoffs is question as well.

If the Saints first playoff game is scheduled for Saturday January 9th, he won't be able to play.

The NFL protocols say a player who tests positive is not permitted to return until 10 days have passed since the positive result.  Kamara will be eligible to return on Sunday January 10th.

A picture surfaced on Friday evening that allegedly shows a maskless Kamara partying at a club on December 26th, a day after his six touchdown game, from Pro Sports Extra:

If this picture was indeed taken on December 26th then Kamara has nobody to blame for his failed test but himself.  It would be an incredibly stupid move that could cost the Saints a shot at a Super Bowl run.
