After weeks of anticipation and seeing him battle through multiple injuries throughout training camp and the beginning of the season, Miller will draw the start for a Saints backfield that is exceptionally short on depth going into Week 3. The largest obstacle between Miller and his emergence as a potential weekly contributor was Jamaal Williams, and he’s now sidelined with a hamstring injury that could hold him out for more than just a week or two. The return of Alvin Kamara looms large, but a strong performance this week would go a long way in establishing a role for Miller in the Saints offense moving forward – even once Kamara is back and up to speed.
