Alvin Kamara was due to appear in court in Las Vegas this morning but instead he was training with his Saints teammates.
Kamara’s lawyer represented him in court for his off-season arrest, where a judge granted him and three other defendants a 60-day status check.
That means Alvin Kamara will be at least 3-4 games into the season before he even goes back to court to see what the next steps will be regarding his legal troubles.
According to 8 News Now, The Saints, who are running back, are still facing battery charges from an incident at a Las Vegas casino in February.
Police say the February 5 altercation was caught on camera. In the video, police say Kamara placed his hand on the alleged victim’s chest to prevent him from boarding the elevator at the rooftop nightclub, Drai’s. The man reportedly pushed Kamara’s hand away before Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons punched the man. The man was knocked unconscious and Kamara, Lammons and two other men, Darrin Young and Percy Harris, allegedly stomped on the face, chest and legs, leaving an orbital fracture in the eye and injuries to the head, knees and arms.
Kamara’s hearing this morning has already been postponed twice after lawyers asked the judge for more time to consider evidence in the case.
Mike Triplett brings up a good point in the following tweet, stating that even after the two-month delay, Kamara may still have to go through the duration of a trial that may not have a start date until a few months to move forward with its legal troubles in 2023.
The NFL will monitor the legal case before making a decision on whether to punish Kamara. The Saints star could potentially be suspended, but a large part of any possible punishment will depend on the results and outcome of his legal case.
Twitter users reacted to the news and suggested that the charges against Kamara should be dropped after he said there was evidence Kamara was threatened and molested by the victim. Another user replied that it was a lot more complicated than saying he was acting in self-defense.
Whether this delay is good or bad for the Saints really all depends on when the legal case is settled. This means Kamara will definitely start the season but could face suspension mid-year, or worse as the Saints hope for a playoff run.
The worst-case scenario would be the Saints making the playoffs but losing Kamara when they need him most for a potential Super Bowl run.
He’ll lick it when the time comes, but chances are we’ll see Kamara dress up for the first part of the NFL regular season. Some have a feeling he won’t see discipline until next season – which is also a very good possibility.
For what it’s worth, Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson was just banned from the NFL for six games after more than 20 women accused him of sexual misconduct.
But it’s the NFL we’re talking about here, so we’ll all be surprised when this legal thing with Kamara is finally settled.
Meanwhile, Kamara is training and preparing to play in the upcoming season.
