New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara missed practice Friday after a positive coronavirus test, according to The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate.

If a second test also proves positive, Kamara will have to miss Sunday's finale against the Carolina Panthers, and the first round of the playoffs if the Saints do not secure the first-round bye.

The Saints must win Sunday in Carolina, and would need the Chicago Bears to beat the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks to win against the San Francisco 49ers to get the number one seed in the NFC.
