The New Orleans Saints will be without tight end Jimmy
Graham today as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but linebacker Jonathan
Vilma will return to action, reports Kareem Copeland of NFL.com.
New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle)
will not play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, and linebacker
Jonathan Vilma will play after being activated from the physically unable to
perform (PUP) list, a team source told NFL Network's Alex Flanagan.
Graham was questionable heading into the weekend, and he
didn’t make the trip with the team to Tampa Bay Saturday.
Vilma was suspended as a result of the alleged bounty
scandal, but he is eligible to play while appealing his ban. He has been recovering
from knee surgery, and Copeland expects him to be limited against the Bucs.
