Saints LB Jonathan Vilma To Play 20-30 Snaps Against The Buccaneers

ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that  Saints LB Jonathan Vilma is expected to be added to the active roster, and is expected to get about 20 to 30 snaps against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Vilma’s return could provide the Saints with a better run defense, seeing as LB David Hawthorne will miss Week 7’s game. The Saints will probably keep Vilma limited because of his lack of playing time due to suspensions, and his off-season surgeries. He can be activated  by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, due to the ongoing appeal process.
