The New Orleans Saints desperately needed their best running back on the field on Sunday afternoon.
Fortunately for them, they’ll have him back next week, as Alvin Kamara just served his three-game suspension.
The Pro-Bowl RB took to Twitter to share a hilarious clip to react to the news, acting as if he was coming out of prison.

The Saints offense has struggled to move the chains thus far this season.
Derek Carr hasn’t been at his best despite some big plays and an interesting set of playmakers and big-play specialists.
Dennis Allen is obviously a defensive-minded coach, and the Saints may need to make some major adjustments to fulfill their potential.
They have an elite defense but have failed to make an impact on the other side of the field, and that will obviously hamper their expectations.
The Saints led, 17-0, over the Green Bay Packers before Carr left with an injury.
They failed to establish the run to continue draining out the clock and leave Lambeau Field with a win, and that’s where a bruising veteran like Kamara could’ve come in handy, even if he’s no longer in his prime.
Kamara is a force to be reckoned with and should still draw plenty of defensive attention, and his presence there should help open up several lanes for the Saints’ struggling and stagnant passing game.
Carr will likely miss some time with a shoulder injury, so the Saints should rely heavily upon their workhorse running back when they take the field to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.NEXT: Saints Reportedly Agree To 4-Year Extension With Key Defender
