The Redskins running back was carted from the field with his right leg in an aircast following an ugly injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Saints.

Kamara finished Sunday's game with eight carries for 42 yards along with six catches for 75 yards and a score. But the Redskins followed with a 75-yard drive in six plays to take a 31-16 lead at 5:58 on a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jeremy Sprinkle, who was almost as open as Grant, but wasn't only because he was in the end zone already. It was the largest fourth quarter comeback in New Orleans Saints history.

Chris Thompson's season is likely over. Quarterback Drew Brees gave up a first-quarter interception and threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes. This reborn unit swarmed Kirk Cousins as he tried to get his team into field goal position at the end of regulation, and when Washington got the ball first in overtime, they continued to make him uncomfortable and forced a sack that led to another quick punt. The only other scoring was a Lutz 29-yard filed goal at the very end of the half.
