After missing two games, Alvin Kamara will return to the field for the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

Kamara was dealing with knee and ankle injuries, but was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

"It's like a downfall, kind of, because I wish I was out there," Kamara said. "I'm happy to be back, just happy to be back practicing on the field with my teammates, happy to be back kind of like a regular functioning member of this team. Because when you're hurt, you're kind of like on the back burner a little bit. You kind of miss out."

Kamara said there's no jealousy involved after Latavius Murray excelled in his absence. He said he will be happy to share the workload with Murray going forward -- like he did in the past with Mark Ingram.

"It's not like I'm selfish. I don't need the ball every play. He's fully capable, too. So I think we'll get a good balance going, and it will be hard to stop," Kamara said

"And he was like, 'I'm good. I'm not tripping,'" he added. "I think it's an unselfish team. ... So however it shakes out, it shakes out. I'm ready."
