New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara returned to full practice participation Wednesday and told reporters he is "good to go" for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

After getting targeted repeatedly early in the game, Kamara got popped and suffered a concussion.

But his words and his return to practice both indicate that he is on the right track.

Kamara suffered the concussion during the Saints' first offensive series Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons and did not finish the game. He was evaluated by trainers on the sideline before being taken back to the locker room for further evaluation and ultimately ruled out of the game.

On a broader scale, Kamara is a major part of the Saints' impressive turnaround this season. He still ranks sixth in the National Football League in yards from scrimmage - one spot behind teammate Mark Ingram - with 1,247 yards, including 608 rushing yards and 639 receiving yards.

Players missing today's workout included linebacker A.J. Klein (groin), wide receiver Ted Ginn (rib), and defensive end Trey Hendrickson (ankle).
