Saints' Kendre Miller: Leading rusher in Week 18 win
Miller posted 13 rushes for 73 yards and one touchdown and caught his only target for six yards during Sunday's 48-17 win over the Falcons.
Miller made the most of his first game since the Week 9 win against Chicago, as he logged season highs across the board to go along with the first rushing touchdown of his career. The Saints were without starting running back Alvin Kamara (ankle), who was inactive. As a result, the team turned to veteran backup Jamaal Williams and Miller. The rookie running back got off to a strong start with a three-yard rushing score in the second quarter on just his fourth carry of the game, and he finished with a team high in rushing yards despite logging one fewer carry than Williams. New Orleans was eliminated from playoff contention despite winning Week 18; therefore, Miller finishes his 2023 rookie campaign with 41 carries for 156 yards and a touchdown.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kendre Miller: Active Sunday
Miller (ankle/illness) is listed available for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.
After limited participation in back-to-back practices earlier in the week, Miller logged a DNP Friday due to an illness on top of his ankle issue. However, he is seemingly feeling better and will suit up for the first time since Week 9. With Alvin Kamara (ankle) inactive, Miller and Jordan Mims will be the depth options behind Jamaal Williams in the backfield.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kendre Miller: Adds illness to ankle injury
Miller (ankle/illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Miller was a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday, but he failed to practice Friday and is now dealing with an illness on top of the ankle injury that has sidelined him for the past seven games. With Alvin Kamara (ankle) questionable, Jamaal Williams could be the top healthy running back for the Saints on Sunday, with Miller possibly working in a change-of-pace role if the rookie plays and Kamara doesn't....

Saints' Kendre Miller: Limited participant again
Miller (ankle) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday.
The running back has missed seven straight games with the ankle injury. Miller has 28 carries for 83 yards and no touchdowns this season, and he remains behind Alvin Kamara and Jamaal Williams on the depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kendre Miller: Inactive in Week 17
Miller (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
The rookie's troublesome ankle was expected to keep him out for a seventh straight game, and his inactive status is now confirmed. Miller's absence isn't expected to impact a Saints backfield that will have Alvin Kamara after the latter was able to overcome a late-week illness, as well as veteran No. 2 back Jamaal Williams in his usual complementary role....

Saints' Kendre Miller: Likely to sit out Week 17
Miller (ankle) remains listed as questionable but isn't expected to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Miller will likely be included among the Saints' list of inactives, which will be released 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Though Miller was a limited participant in practices Wednesday through Friday, head coach Dennis Allen intimated after the latter session that the running back was trending in the wrong direction for Sunday. Miller's expected absence for a seventh straight game thus comes as little surprise, but the fact that the Saints haven't yet placed him on injured reserve offers some hope that the rookie might be able to play Week 18 against the Falcons. Even if Miller is available for that contest, he's not likely to have much of a role in the backfield behind Alvin Kamara and Jamaal Williams, especially if the Saints have playoff implications at stake in the regular-season finale....

Saints' Kendre Miller: Trending in wrong direction
Miller was bothered by his injured ankle during Friday's practice and is trending in the wrong direction ahead of Sunday's matchup with Tampa Bay, Brooke Kirchhofer of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Dennis Allen said he'll still treat Miller as a game-time decision, but it sounds like the Saints coach doesn't expect the rookie to play. Miller officially is listed as questionable after logging limited practices throughout the week, and he now seems more likely than not to miss a seventh consecutive game. While there's no assurance of a meaningful role in the offense even if he gets healthy before the end of the season, Miller's availability is a bit more relevant this week with Alvin Kamara listed as questionable due to an illness. Kamara seems much more likely than Miller to play, at this point.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kendre Miller: Questionable after limited practice
Miller (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Brooke Kirchhofer of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Miller was a limited participant in all three of New Orleans' practices Wednesday through Friday. Per Matthew Paras of The New Orleans Times-Picayune, coach Dennis Allen said Miller will be available Sunday but wouldn't commit to Miller being active on the gameday roster. Allen's comments suggest that Miller's healthy enough to play, but the team may not trust the rookie to handle a role in a must-win game after being unavailable since Week 9.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kendre Miller: Still limited at practice Thursday
Miller (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Thursday, Brooke Kirchhofer of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Miller has missed the Saints' last six games due to an ankle sprain he sustained in Week 9 versus the Bears, and now his availability for Week 17 is also in doubt. If he can't manage to practice in full Friday, he'll probably carry an injury designation into the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kendre Miller: Another limited practice
Miller (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports
Miller missed the past six games but apparently was close to returning for last Thursday's 30-22 loss to the Rams. He's unlikely to have a major role in the offense even if he's cleared to play Week 17 against Tampa Bay, but the Saints might give him a few more chances Week 18 if they're out of the playoff mix at that point....

Saints' Kendre Miller: Sitting out again Thursday
Miller (ankle) is listed as inactive Thursday at the Rams, John Hendrix of SI.com reports.
Miller thus will miss his sixth game in a row as a result of a knee injury. The development runs counter to a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network from earlier Thursday in which he relayed that Miller was expected to play Week 16. Miller will turn his focus to returning to action for the Saints' next game Sunday, Dec. 31 at Tampa Bay, while Jamaal Williams and gadget option Taysom Hill receive any carries that don't go to Alvin Kamara....
