NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The New Orleans Saints running back room will not be available to play against the Panthers on Sunday.

Alvin Kamara registered a positive COVID-19 test, and the entire running back room had close contact with the running back, so they must sit out also.

That’s according to a tweet by FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer.

The Saints running back room consist of Kamara, Latavius Murray, Trey Burton, and Dwayne Washington.

Ty Montgomery will move from receiver to running back for tomorrow’s game against Panthers. The team can also use Taysom Hill at running back Sunday.
