The New Orleans Saints will be without all of their running backs for tomorrow’s game against the Carolina Panthers, according to reports.
Running backs Latavius Murray and Dwayne Washington, as well as fullback Michael Burton, have all been placed in the COVID-19 protocol due to being in close contact with star running back Alvin Kamara, who tested positive for the virus on Friday.
Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer said wide receiver Ty Montgomery will move into the running back role and Tony Jones will be promoted from the practice squad. Montgomery had played the position prior to joining the Saints.
Kamara is the 10th Saint this season to test positive for coronavirus, according to WWL.
The Saints’ away game is set to kick-off at 3:25 p.m. on Sunday and will air on FOX.
