The status of Saints receiver Marques Colston and linebacker Jonathan Vilma remains unclear as New Orleans winds down its week of preparation for Sunday's game against the Jets in New York. Colston, who has only six catches for 44 yards in his past three games, missed Friday's practice with an unspecified knee injury. Vilma has practiced the past two weeks without any apparent limitations and is eligible for the first time this season to come off of short-term injured reserve. However, coach Sean Payton has not indicated whether he'll make such a move. Vilma says he has rehabilitated fully from arthroscopic knee surgery in August, is moving vigorously and would be ready to play Sunday. Safety Malcolm Jenkins also missed practice because of a knee injury. --- AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org
