The New Orleans Saints will take on the Chicago Bears this Sunday without Alvin Kamara, who is currently out with knee and ankle injuries. Tight end Jared Cook has also been ruled out for play, as well as Tre’Quan Smith and Trey Hendrickson. Drew Brees is also out with a thumb injury.
New Orleans Saints starting running back Alvin Kamara and tight end Jared Cook have been ruled out for Sunday’s Week 7 game against the Chicago Bears.
Kamara has been battling ankle and knee injuries, while Cook is sidelined with an ankle injury.
Neither Kamara nor Cook practiced once this week.
Three other Saints will not play against the Bears as well, as wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith has been ruled out with an ankle injury, defensive end Trey Hendrickson won’t play due to his neck injury and quarterback Drew Brees is out with his right thumb ailment.
Hendrickson was the only player of those five to practice this week, as he was limited for all three days of practice.
Three players for the Chicago Bears are questionable, including starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky. Trubisky is coming off a shoulder injury, but went through full practice all three days.
Offensive lineman Ted Larsen (knee) was limited on Wednesday and Thursday, but went through full practice on Friday. Defensive tackle Bilal Nichols was a new addition to the injury report on Friday, being limited with a knee injury.
