Saints tight end Jimmy Graham won’t be playing on Sunday against the Bucs. But linebacker Jonathan Vilma could be.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Saints will be adding Vilma to the active roster on Saturday, a necessary prerequisite to his ability to play on Sunday.
Vilma spent the first six weeks of the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. If he plays, his season could still be limited.
With a hearing on his suspension for the balance of the season set for Tuesday, October 30, Vilma could be done for the year after next Sunday at Denver.
UPDATE 2:00 p.m. ET: The Saints have announced the move. To make room for Vilma on the 53-man roster, the Saints have released receiver Greg Camarillo.
