Saints running back Alvin Kamara is out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Falcons with a concussion after getting hit in the first quarter.

Kamara had just one carry for two yards and three catches for 25 yards before exiting in the first quarter. He suffered a helmet-to-helmet hit.

The rookie from Tennessee has been a key piece in the Saints offense with 1,220 yards from scrimmage and 11 touchdowns through the first 12 games of the year.

New Orleans is leading the NFC South with a 9-3 record while Atlanta is in third at 7-5. The two teams will meet again this year when the Saints host a Week 16 game between the division rivals.

The two teams are currently tied at 3–3 with just under seven minutes left in the first half.
