According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, it’s doubtful that linebacker Jonathan Vilma will be ready for this week’s opener after undergoing knee surgery.
Saw the report that #Saints LB Jonathan Vilma (knee) could be ready for the opener. Temper expectations. I'm told, that's pretty doubtful.

So far there's been no changes to the Saints' active roster, although that could still change in the days leading up to the Falcons game. The Saints did announce that they've filled six of their eight available spots for the practice squad, and unlike last year the names all come from players that participated in Saints' camp this summer, with the exception of Rolle...

Ramon Antonio Vargas of the Baton Rouge Advocate reports that “there’s a possibility” that Jonathan Vilma...
Ian Rapoport reports that New Orleans Saint’s ILB Jonathan Vilma is “pretty doubtful” to be ready for the start of the season.
Vilma, 31, is coming off a knee scope surgery which he underwent back in mid-August and has been rehabbing ever since with the intent to be fit for Week 1 against the Falcons. The Saints will turn to David Hawthorne or Curtis Lofton while Vilma is...
It looks like Saints coach Sean Payton will open the regular season by throwing a dose of youth and inexperience at the visiting Atlanta Falcons.
As of Monday, 10 rookies - six of them undrafted - and three other players who have yet to appear in a regular-season game were on the Saints' 53-man roster.
Some of those may not be active on Sunday, but others are expected to play...
Jonathan Vilma was looking forward to starting the 2013 season on a much better note than how 2012 began for him and the Bountygate-affected New Orleans Saints.
That won't be the case for the veteran linebacker, as he won't play in Sunday's opener against the Atlanta Falcons, a source told FOX Sports.
And there's even worse news for the 31-year-old Vilma, who is...
There were conflicting reports about New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and his availability for the season opener. Vilma had arthroscopic knee surgery in the middle of August so you’d expect him to be out for a couple weeks, maybe more on the severity of the surgery. Considering how much practice he had been missing because of swelling and discomfort you’d think...
