METAIRIE, La. — METAIRIE, La. (AP) — The New Orleans Saints activated running back Alvin Kamara and wide receiver Michael Thomas for their playoff game Sunday against the Chicago Bears. 

Kamara missed the regular-season finale last Sunday because of COVID-19 protocols. 

Thomas had been on injured reserve for the final three games because of a nagging ankle injury.

The team also announced Saturday that wide receiver/return specialist Deonte Harris and cornerback Patrick Robinson were activated from injured reserve.

Wide receiver Jake Kumerow was waived; offensive lineman Nick Easton was placed on IR; and linebacker Chase Hansen and wide receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey were elevated from the practice squad.
