METAIRIE, La. (AP) — A well-rested, healthy and vigorous Alvin Kamara was back on the Saints’ practice field Wednesday, looking “explosive” in the words of coach Dennis Allen.

New Orleans’ injured quarterback, Derek Carr, watched practice snaps unfold from behind the action, wearing his jersey but no helmet or pads.

Kamara is finally set to play after serving a three-game suspension in connection with a February 2022 melee in a Las Vegas casino hotel — and made it pretty clear that he’s ready.

“I feel like college again; I’m fresh — I’m real fresh,” Kamara said. “I’m happy. Y’all will see when I get out there. I’m excited — definitely, definitely excited. It’s going to be fun.”

Carr’s status for Sunday’s home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is less certain, but the quarterback wasn’t wearing any visible sling over his sprained right shoulder and wasn’t about to rule himself out after sitting out one practice.

“I’m going to do everything I can to, you know, be out there with my guys,” said Carr, who was injured at Green Bay on Sunday while being sacked for the 11th time in three games. ...

Saints opened up more salary cap space by releasing Tre'Quan Smith

Tre’Quan Smith was released by the New Orleans Saints this week and immediately booked a flight to visit Sean Payton’s Denver Broncos, but what does his departure mean for the team’s salary cap outlook? The Saints were under the spending limit by about $2.67 million prior to releasing Smith from injured reserve.

Now, the experts at Over The Cap estimate the Saints are under the cap by $4.1 million. That isn’t much (it currently ranks eighth-lowest around the league), but it does give them a little wiggle room ahead of the Oct. 31 trade deadline.

They wouldn’t be able to take on the full...

The New Orleans Saints are preparing for a divisional matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both teams seem pretty banged up during Wednesday’s practice having 13 players combined who did not participate.

The New Orleans Saints were handed their 1st loss of the season in a heartbreakingly close one, losing 18-17 to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in Lambeau. Not only did the Saints lose the game but they also lost QB Derek Carr in the 3rd quarter to a shoulder injury. Thankfully, Carr was diagnosed with just an AC sprain and is considered “week-to-week.”

But as upsetting as it was to see our starting quarterback down with an injury, it was just as upsetting to see the team blow a 17-point lead, giving up 18 points to the Packers in the 4th quarter. Some have said it was because the team...

After being let go by the New Orleans Saints, wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith is visiting the Denver Broncos, per 9 News Denver’s Mike Klis. Smith has an opportunity to team up with his old coach Sean Payton who has struggled to get the Broncos going amid his 0-3 start. Smith was recently released from the Saints injured reserve list after missing the first three games and most of training camp with a groin issue.

Klis reports that Smith will arrive in Denver on Wednesday night for an entry physical and visit at the team facility. If all goes well, he’ll likely sign with the Broncos —...
