>>Saints' Vilma Could Return This Week

(New Orleans, LA)  --  Suspended New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma could reportedly return to action this week.  Vilma told WVUE-TV that he will come off the Physically Unable to Perform list as he appeals his year-long suspension.  Vilma was one of several Saints players banned by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who amended some of the suspensions he originally imposed but kept Vilma's at a full season.  The latest appeal will likely be heard some time next week, allowing Vilma to play this Sunday against Tampa Bay if he is activated by the team.  Vilma is one of the central figures in the club's bounty scandal.
