Disclaimer No. 2: Mark Ingram, Adrian Peterson and Drew Brees haven’t taken a snap yet, since the New Orleans Saints have decided to rest their veteran starters through the first two games. Willie Snead Jerseys But that doesn’t take away from the dazzling body of work that Saints rookie running back Alvin Kamara has been putting on tape this summer while taking full advantage of his snaps with the first team. Brandin Cooks Jerseys Kamara torched the Los Angeles Chargers’ defense for a 50-yard touchdown run on the Saints' first offensive snap of Sunday’s 13-7 victory. He followed later with a 22-yard gain on a short reception.

Last week it was runs of 12 and 22 yards against the Cleveland Browns. And it has been more of the same on the practice field for the third-round pick from Tennessee, whom the Saints liked so much that they traded away next year’s second-round pick to grab him. Drew Brees Jerseys It’s still difficult to project a major role for Kamara in New Orleans’ offense since he is stuck behind Ingram and Peterson in the pecking order -- and both of them have looked solid this summer, as well. But the Saints absolutely will find ways to get Kamara on the field as a runner/receiver/returner if he continues to show this level of potential.

Over his last two seasons at Tennessee, Kamara had 1,294 yards and 16 touchdowns rushing and 74 catches for 683 yards and seven touchdowns receiving. When the Saints drafted the 5-foot-10, 215-pounder, they said they envisioned him in the type of “joker” role once held by Darren Sproles and Reggie Bush. Kenny Vaccaro Jerseys I thought it might take a year or an injury before Kamara played a significant role. But he looks like he’s trying to speed up the timetable.

QB depth chart: Brees rested for the second straight week, and Chase Daniel was solid in his place. Those guys remain written in stone at their respective positions. Meanwhile, nobody is stepping up to win the No. 3 job. Mark Ingram Jerseys The Saints gave former New York Giants backup Ryan Nassib the entire second half as an audition after he played well last week. But he didn’t have a very strong night while dealing with heavy pressure. He threw a 99-yard pick-six midway through the fourth quarter (which arguably could have been caught by WR Tommylee Lewis) and finished 6-of-15 for 55 yards.
