When the New Orleans Saints take the field on Sunday afternoon, it looks like they will do so without one of their best players.

Star running back Alvin Kamara made a surprise appearance on his team's injury report before last weekend's game. Kamara ended up playing in the team's game against Jacksonville, but the injury hasn't gone away.

He was limited at practice earlier this week, but has missed the last two days of practice.

That doesn't bode well for his changes of playing in Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Here's the latest from Saints insider Katherine Terrell:

Earlier this week, NFL insider Tom Pelissero revealed what type of injury Kamara.

"Alvin Kamara is dealing with a high ankle-type issue that will limit him in practice this week, per sources. Kamara still thinks he has a shot to play Sunday against the Bears," Pelissero reported.

Against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Kamara racked up 18 total touches, but failed to generate much offense. He gained 31 yards on 11 carries and 35 yards on seven receptions during the team's 13-6 win.

After Kamara missed practice each of the past two days, it looks like the Saints will have to roll with backup running back Latavious Murray against the Bears.
