New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was upgraded to a full participant while Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan remained limited on Thursday's injury/practice participation report.

Both teams are coming off a bye week.

Prior to the bye, Kamara had missed two games. Will he miss a third straight?

Saints coach Sean Payton said today he expects Kamara to play on Sunday.

The Saints (7-1) host their arch-rival, the Falcons (1-7) Sunday at noon at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Here's a full rundown of Thursday's injury report for both teams.
