Despite playing in 14 games last season, Saints running back Alvin Kamara just didn’t seem quite right. Now, we know that had a lot to do with an October ankle injury from which he never fully recovered until this offseason.
How quickly we forget what Kamara can do when he’s fully healthy, having already found the end zone twice in Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers.
That was the biggest difference in last year’s numbers, down from 18 total touchdowns in 2018 to just six in 2019.
Perhaps already seeing the results from changing up his workout regimen during the quarantine. “I feel fast, though. I feel good. Same thing this off-season working with my trainers and working with Sharif, working with Swayze and just trying to keep crafting and keep finding ways to get better. And it’s paid off every year, especially this year with coming off an injury. I feel back to normal. I forgot what it felt like to play healthy, so definitely excited about that.”
Kamara only had 16 yards rushing on 12 carries in week one albeit against a Tampa Bay defense that ranked first against the run last season.
