New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is dealing with a rib cartilage issue and will be held out against the Buccaneers today, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source.

Kamara's rib issue limited him in practice on Wednesday and held him out entirely on Thursday and Friday, making him one of several key Saints questionable versus the Bucs. However, Saints quarterback Jameis Winston (back) and running back Mark Ingram (ankle) are both expected to play, Rapoport reports.

The five-time Pro Bowler had a quiet Week 1 in the team's 27-26 comeback victory over the Falcons, turning nine carries into 39 rushing yards and contributing only seven more receiving yards on three receptions.

Kamara's absence figures to loom large over New Orleans as it looks to earn its fifth consecutive regular-season victory over Bucs quarterback Tom Brady.
