Will play-time determine Alvin Kamara's fate?

Saints coach Dennis Allen has labeled running back Alvin Kamara a game-time decision, so his participation in Sunday's matchup against the Falcons is uncertain.

"He's one of those guys that is so valuable to our team that we're going to go all the way up to game time to see where he's at," Allen said, according to Katherine Terrell of ESPN.

"He's made improvement throughout the week and we'll just wait until game time to make a decision on that."

Kamara was unable to participate in any practice this week after fracturing his ankle in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

In 13 games played, he has a career-low 180 carries for 694 yards (if he is not active on Sunday), 

 75 receptions for 466 yards (including six touchdowns), and no interceptions.

In Kamara's absence, youngster Kendre Miller and Jamaal Williams will get increased playing time.

 Miller, who has been out with an ankle injury since November 5th, did not participate in Friday's practice due to sickness.
