Don't count on this being fact, yet. Just putting it out here. Wait until something official comes out.

I know people that have had one for an acute condition and never needed another. Myself, I have had close to twenty of them and they work quite well for my needs. But I have a chronic cervical condition.
Well, according to Dr. Chao the profootball doc. If it was an epidural there should be a concern. Here's his tweet on it.

Not sure what to believe.
Epidural/SI joint/stomach bug/contract?
However, epidural is a significant concern.
Sacroiliac (SI) joint injection is completely different and not nearly as worrisome.

You can worry about what you wish, I suppose. I just know that I can function quite well without them and I only get them because they are very simple and effective for minor acute pain control. Works quicker and lasts longer than aspirin or Aleve. Now, I would be more concerned if it was for something along the lines of an RFA (Radio Frequency Ablation). I get those twice a year in the facet joints and they relieve chronic pain caused by arthritis or bone spurs.

He played dirt cheap on his first deal and deserves a raise. He seriously outperformed his rookie contract. Pay the man. He earned it. Just make sure that we have money to keep the rest of the players we want to re-sign.

Re: Alvin Kamara Saints Contract Discussion

Why in the hell would the Saints even entertain a trade with Kamara to the Niners? A NFC road block, a team built to compete in late January.

C'mon Drea Harris, that sounds ridiculous.

It's a dead news cycle until final cuts this Saturday.

Hey, JP! I think you ought to drop Kamara in the B&G fantasy league because of that severe back injury. Word is that he's going to experience paralysis at any moment.
