New Orleans Saints star rookie running back Alvin Kamara is still progressing through the NFL's concussion protocol, but he expects to play Sunday against the New York Jets. Kamara exited in the first quarter of last Thursday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons after suffering the brain injury and did not return. He tweeted early Friday morning that he'd be "right back at it next week," and in the Saints locker room Monday, he said, "Yes," when asked if he'd be back for the next game.
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton has been vocal about a couple league issues in recent days, and the NFL is well aware of his public criticism. Joe Lockhart, the league's executive vice president of communications, held his weekly teleconference on Monday and was asked about Payton criticizing the league for hiring Mike Cerullo as well as bemoaning the officiating in Thursday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
The New Orleans Saints had their worst scoring output of the season in Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. As it turns out, the offense had its fewest opportunities to score as the Saints had a season-low 52 snaps. The Saints are in some ways responsible for the low number of snaps. Had they converted better than 3-for-10 on third downs they would've run more plays. But, the low snap total is just one explanation for why the Saints lost to their chief rivals.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
