Saints RB Alvin Kamara ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints have announced their inactives ahead of Sunday’s season game and some key players were ruled out for both teams. Falcons quarterback Taylor Heinicke (ankle) and Saints running back Alvin Kamara won’t play in Week 18.

Heinicke will be replaced by Desmond Ridder at quarterback, while New Orleans will look to Jamaal Williams on Sunday.

Williams rushed for over 1,000 yards and 17 touchdowns last season in Detroit, but he’s rarely been utilized since signing with the Saints in free agency. The veteran running back has 280 rushing yards this season and has yet to rush for a touchdown.
