Report: Alvin Kamara, Saints close to finalizing contract extension

  Report: Alvin Kamara, Saints close to finalizing contract extension Kamara is currently set to make just $2.1 million in the final year of his rookie deal. He missed several days of training camp recently, and it was initially assumed that he was unhappy about his contract situation. However, Kamara said Monday that he has never held out.Despite playing through a significant injury for much of last season, Kamara still racked up more than 1,300 yards from scrimmage. He has also scored 37 touchdowns through his first three NFL seasons.

It looks like the Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints will play their games in Week 7. Neither team experienced new coronavirus positives after Friday’s round of testing, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Both the Raiders and Saints have placed players on the COVID-19/reserve list in the lead-up to Week 7. The Raiders placed offensive lineman Trent Brown on that list Wednesday, a the Saints placed receiver Emmanuel Sanders on the COVID-19/reserve list Friday.

Both teams performed contact tracing to identify players who were in close contact with Brown and Sanders. No additional players have tested positive.

On Thursday, the NFL protected against the possibility of a postponement by moving the Raiders’ game out of the “Sunday Night Football” slot in case the game couldn’t take place as planned. As a result, the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals will play on “Sunday Night Football” in Week 7. The Raiders will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 4:05 p.m. ET on Fox.

Will Raiders have their offensive line in Week 7?

While it looks as though the Raiders will play in Week 7, the team could be severely hampered by coronavirus absences. The Raiders sent their entire offensive line home for multiple days after Brown was placed on the COVID-19/reserve list.
