A source told NBC Sports that NFL investigators were continuing to monitor the status of the New Orleans Saints running back’s laptop battery, after he was involved in a January incident where his device malfunctioned while he was playing football, according to ESPN.NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said last month that Kamara’s involvement in the incident would not affect his status as the league’s offensive rookie of the year.

 Kamara received a $50,000 fine and lost two games of game checks for his actions, although he did receive credit for those losses.At the time, Goodell said Kamara had been suspended indefinitely due to the battery issue. But in a follow-up interview, the commissioner indicated that Kamara might have been reinstated.He also suggested that Kamara could potentially play again in Week 15 if he passed a drug test.When asked about the suspension at the Super Bowl, Goodell said, “I don’t think we should comment further on any particular player,” per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.


to ESPN’s report, the battery malfunction occurred Jan. 13, when Kamara was warming up before a game against Tampa Bay. After the game ended, the laptop went dead, and players from both teams helped move it back to the locker room. On Jan 14, Kamara took to Instagram to share a video of him showing off the battery, writing: “Man, I got my work cut out for me.”In the video, Kamara states that he has worked hard to get his body ready for the upcoming season. “So I’m going to do what I gotta do to give myself the best opportunity possible to succeed,” he added.The running back posted the video on his account along with a photo of himself lying on the ground and a caption reading: “After that long run I was feeling good.” Later that day, Kamara shared a second video of him working out in the training room, saying: “Getting prepared for 2019.”


for the incident, Kamara spoke about it during a news conference shortly after the game. “It happened, man. You know, it happens. We just gotta keep pushing forward,” he said. “Like I always say, whatever God put me here for, God gonna take care of me. Keep doing what I gotta do, try to stay humble and just continue to push forward.”But the running back acknowledged that his actions weren’t in line with how the team expected its players to act. “I understand where they’re coming from,” he said in reference to the Saints coaches. “But at the same time, you expect us to set examples and bring some type of pride to the organization. And I feel like I let them down today. So we’ll deal with it, and we’ll make sure we learn from this situation.” According to ESPN, Kamara was also fined an additional $24,309 for entering the field of play without being cleared to return to the sideline.
