Jonathan Vilma made an immediate impact in his first game this season. Vilma, who was both rehabbing a knee injury and appealing a suspension because of his alleged involvement in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal, was moved from the physically-unable-to-play list to the Saints' 53-man roster on Wednesday.
Though the linebacker didn't start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Vilma made a big play early. He hit Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman, forcing an incomplete pass.
