Alvin Kamara laughs at ‘the injury rating’ Madden 21 gave him


    The NFL on CBS listed on Twitter on Tuesday every NFL player to record 2,000 rushing yards, 2,000 receiving yards and three Pro Bowl selections over their first three seasons in the league.

    Apparently EA Sports isn’t sold on the New Orleans Saints running back and former Tennessee football star.

    Kamara has an overall rating of 88 in Madden 21, making him the 10th highest-rated running back on the game.

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey topped the ranking, joining the 99 rating club. Titans running back Derrick Henry (93) was No. 2, ahead of Nick Chubb (92), Ezekiel Elliott (92), Saquon Barkley (91), Dalvin Cook (91), Aaron Jones (90), Joe Mixon (89) and Josh Jacobs (88).

    Kamara laughed about the rating on Twitter, writing that Madden “hit me wit the injury rating.”

    After battling ankle and knee injuries, Kamara finished the 2019 season with 797 rushing yards, 533 receiving yards and six total touchdowns, starting nine times in 14 games.

    He erupted onto the scene as a rookie in 2017, finishing with 728 rushing yards, 826 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns. In 2018 he went for 14 rushing touchdowns among his 883 rushing yards and caught 81 passes for 709 yards and four more touchdowns.

    After being picked in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, going 67th overall to New Orleans, Kamara signed a four-year deal worth $3.8 million, including a $972,772 signing bonus.

    He’ll make $2,133,000 this season, in the final year of his deal before possibly becoming an unrestricted free agent entering 2021.

    Kamara in two seasons at Tennessee rushed for 1,294 yards and had 683 receiving yards, totaling 23 touchdowns over the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

    He ran 107 times for 698 yards and seven touchdowns in 2015, adding 34 receptions for 291 yards and three more scores.

    He had 103 attempts on the ground in 2016, running for 596 yards and nine touchdowns. He caught 40 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns.

    Kamara was a five-star prospect and the No. 1 overall junior college player in the country in 2015, when he signed with Tennessee. A Norcross, Ga., native, he originally enrolled at Alabama in July 2013 before landing at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas in February 2014.
