Update: Williams is doubtful to return with a hamstring injury. Tony Jones Jr. has now rushed 11 times for 32 yards and a touchdown in Williams’ stead as we head into the fourth quarter. There is a decent chance that rookie Kendre Miller can return in Week 3 to face the Packers before Alvin Kamara returns in Week 4.

Update: Williams is dealing with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return. The Saints are thin at running back at the moment. Tony Jones Jr. will lead the way, but Taysom Hill will also see an uptick in touches.

The Saints RB1, Jamaal Williams, injured his leg and has been taken back to the locker room. Tony Jones Jr. is getting the work behind him with Kendre Miller out and Alvin Kamara still suspended.

The Saints lead the Panthers 6-3 as they close in on halftime.
