Kamara (concussion) has been cleared for Sunday's game against the Jets, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
Benefitting from some extra time coming out of a Thursday game, Kamara was a full practice participant all week and made it through the concussion protocol with time to spare. There should be plenty of touches to go around for both him and Mark Ingram, as the Jets are massive underdogs for Bryce Petty's first start of the season. Kamara had five straight games with at least five catches, 116 scrimmage yards and a touchdown before he suffered a concussion on the opening drive of last Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Falcons.
The move forces the Saints to cut defensive back Sterling Moore. Freeny's signing likely has to do with linebacker A.J. Klein's (groin) doubtful status for Sunday's inter-conference matchup with the Jets. Freeny did not see much of the field in New England, recording only two tackles in four games, but could be thrust into action right away for New Orleans with Klein injured and linebackers Alex Anzalone (shoulder) and Nathan Stupar (knee) on injured reserve.
Hill (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Hill hasn't put in a full practice yet this week, but the Saints haven't provided any indication he's in serious danger of missing the Week 15 matchup with the Jets. He'll likely serve as the Saints' top tight end in that contest, but that role hasn't translated to much fantasy value in recent weeks. Over his last five games, Hill has been targeted just seven times, hauling in five passes for 23 yards and a score.
Ginn (ribs) turned in a limited practice Thursday, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Ginn's involvement in practice Thursday suggests that his day off Wednesday was likely for maintenance-related reasons more than out of any overwhelming concern about his injury. if the wideout is able to take part fully Friday, he'll likely enter the Week 15 game against the Jets without an injury designation.
Coach Sean Payton said Thursday that the expectation is for Kamara (concussion) to play Sunday against the Jets.
The running back already cleared a major hurdle by logging a full practice Wednesday, but concrete news with reference to Kamara clearing the NFL's concussion protocol has yet to arrive. That said, Payton seems quite confident that Kamara will gain clearance, but fantasy players should stay tuned for an official announcement before deploying the back in Week 15 lineups.
