Saints LB Vilma active for Sunday

The SportsXchange

New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma was activated for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, ESPN.com reported Saturday.

Vilma, who has been recovering from a knee injury, is expected to play between 20 and 30 snaps.

Vilma's one-year suspension for his role in the Saints' bounty program -- which is under appeal -- will be decided Oct. 30.

He returned to practice Wednesday after being taken off the physically-unable-to-perform list, but did not work with the first-team defense.

Also, tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game.
