While Kamara has been preparing for a six-game ban following a battery arrest in February, he'll have to wait a bit longer for the NFL to punish him.

The NFL is still keeping an eye on Kamara's legal situation, but there is "no definite deadline on a decision on discipline," according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

According to a league source who spoke to Fowler, Kamara might be suspended, but nothing is certain and it might very well depend on how the case turns up.

According to the same source, unless he gets added to the commissioner's exempt list, Kamara might still play for the Saints when the NFL season begins in September 2022.
