Report: Saints RB Alvin Kamara Expected To Be Suspended For Vegas Incident

Saints RB Alvin Kamara

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is expected to be suspended by the NFL for a February 2022 incident in Las Vegas, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported.

Alvin Kamara Facing Disciplinary Action From NFL

Kamara is set to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday to discuss disciplinary action for an incident involving the Saints’ running back outside a Las Vegas nightclub on the eve of the 2022 Pro Bowl.

Kamara was initially charged with a conspiracy to commit battery and substantial bodily harm. The battery charge is considered a misdemeanor, while the bodily harm charge is a felony.

Last month, Kamara pleaded to a misdemeanor charge of breach of peace.

As a result of the no-contest plea, Kamra was assigned 30 hours of community service. The star running back also had to pay the victim, Darnell Greene, $105,196.17 in restitution.

Alvin Kamara Expected To Be Suspended

Similar to Garafolo’s report, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport also expects Kamara to face a suspension. However, the length will depend on what happens during Kamara’s meeting with Goodell.

“What was behind it? Why did Alvin Kamara do what he appears to have done,” Rapoport said on the potential discussions in the meeting. “Is there something that he can talk to with Goodell to make him have some understanding and realize what led to that altercation?”

The Saints have been preparing to be without Kamara for some time this season. The team signed Jamaal Williams from the Detroit Lions during free agency and drafted running back Kendre Miller out of TCU.
