Alvin Kamara had a good first preseason game with the New Orleans Saints. The former Tennessee running back started even better in his second contest on Sunday.
In the first quarter against the Los Angeles Chargers, Kamara broke off a big run for a 50-yard touchdown. It may only be preseason, but this was an impressive score by the former Vols back.
Take a look at the play below:

— New Orleans Saints (@Saints) August 21, 2017
In his preseason debut against the Cleveland Browns on Aug. 10, Kamara had four carries for 35 yards. He easily surpassed that total with his big run on Sunday.
Kamara, who was selected by the Saints in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, is currently behind Adrian Peterson and former Alabama RB Mark Ingram on New Orleans’ depth chart. But perhaps the former Tennessee standout can earn playing time with a strong preseason and efforts like Sunday’s.
While at Tennessee, Kamara rushed for 1,294 yards and 16 touchdowns over two seasons, while also totaling 683 receiving yards and seven touchdown catches. He decided to leave after his junior season for the NFL.
