New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara and Indianapolis Colts cornerback Chris Lammons have been suspended for the first three games of the season for their role in a 2022 fight in Las Vegas, the league announced Friday.
Both players can participate in the preseason and are eligible to return to the active roster Monday, Sept. 25.
Kamara will miss the Saints’ home opener against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1 and away games against the Carolina Panthers and Green Bay Packers.
Kamara met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell earlier in the week to discuss Kamara’s side of the story, and Kamara said he was grateful for the opportunity. He said he felt as though he was finally able to put the incident behind him after that meeting.
Kamara apologized for his role in the fight, which left one man injured on the eve of the Pro Bowl in Las Vegas. Kamara was initially facing a felony charge but accepted a plea deal that reduced his charges to breach of peace, a misdemeanor.
