With the most recent pushback of Alvin Kamara’s legal case on August 1st, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that a suspension in 2022 seems “unlikely” to come for the star running back of the New Orleans Saints.

Alvin Kamara was arrested in Las Vegas, after playing in the Pro Bowl. He was arrested for alleged battery resulting in substantial bodily harm, a felony. The incident, which locals say happened at Drai’s nightclub at The Cromwell on the Las Vegas Strip, occurred on Saturday at 5:50pm. However, police did not arrest Kamara until Sunday, after he played in the Pro Bowl, for reasons unknown.

Police have claimed that the altercation between Kamara and the alleged victim was reportedly caught on surveillance video. The video allegedly shows Kamara putting his hands on the victim’s chest to prevent him from entering the elevator, and the victim pushing Kamara’s hands away before Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons allegedly punched the victim in the face knocking him unconscious. Police also say that Kamara allegedly punched the victim up to eight times.

All of their attorneys, including Kamara’s, were present and all had reportedly requested a 60-day status. This marked the third time this year that Kamara’s case has been postponed.
