Alvin Kamara could avoid a suspension altogether, which would help the New Orleans Saints tremendously. 

New Orleans Saints insider Nick Underhill said on Establish the Run podcast that Alvin Kamara could avoid suspension despite reports suggesting he could miss six weeks earlier this summer.

Kamara has been in hot water since getting arrested earlier this year in Las Vegas for battery resulting in substantial bodily harm. 

The initial reports suggested he could miss one-third of the season, but now that doesn’t seem like the case. If Kamara does end up avoiding suspension, Saints fans everywhere should be happy to have him for the full year.

Kamara could help provide another weapon for this Saints offense to use as he would compliment fellow running back Mark Ingram.

While justice should be something people want, if the Saints can have both Ingram and Kamara ready to go in Week 1, this situation could quietly disappear.

I’m not saying it should quietly go away because what Kamara allegedly did isn’t okay, and even if he is an NFL running back, he shouldn’t get any passes. However, it does help out the Saints’ offense because there is no denying just how explosive Kamara is for them.

Last year, he rushed for 898 yards and scored four touchdowns. Kamara also had 47 catches for 439 yards and five scores.

The Saints need him to compliment Ingram and give them someone that is versatile as he will tote the rock and by catching the ball. New Orleans needs all the help they can get with so much movement going on, so having a consistent presence like Kamara will only help them.

There is still no official word on if Kamara will be suspended or not, but Underhill believes it may not happen, so it’s something to watch. The NFL’s conduct policy states at least six games if it’s a felony battery, so it’ll be interesting to see why that doesn’t go into effect if this insider’s speculations are accurate.
