Well it turns out Vilma won’t play this season after all. The Saints’ defensive cornerstone for the last few years was on the PUP list when his suspension was temporarily lifted and his chances of actually playing a game this season already seemed a bit slim. The bigger news is that Will Smith is now out for four games. Don’t be surprised at all if both players appeal, especially Vilma who really has nothing to lose. This thing can still get very ugly with courts getting involved, so stay tuned for more updates.
