The New Orleans Saints face the Chicago Bears on Sunday to open the 2021 NFL Playoffs and it appears they will get Alvin Kamara back. The Saints running back has been on the COVID-19 injured reserve list since testing positive heading into Week 17 and is eligible to come off on the day of the game if he continues to test negative.

On Thursday evening, Kamara posted this tweeted, which likely has Saints fans in a good mood.

Kamara and Latavius Murray both sat out last weekend’s regular season finale. Kamara tested positive for COVID-19 and Murray was deemed a hig-risk close contact. Murray was already activated off the IR list once the minimum five days had passed.
