Smith was not penalized for hitting Kamara’s helmet with his own helmet, which was a much-publicized point of emphasis by the NFL during the preseason. It was the latest missed call from referee Walt Anderson’s crew, who had some spotty calls throughout the night.
The Saints have not announced an update on Kamara’s status, but it would not be surprising if he were evaluated for a concussion. He exited a game last year against the Atlanta Falcons after being concussed from a similar hit from linebacker Deion Jones. Stay tuned for updates.
