Saints LB Vilma placed on IR

The New Orleans Saints on Tuesday announced that inside linebacker Jonathan Vilma had been placed on injured reserve/designated to return, which means the team can bring the veteran back to the active roster later this season.

Vilma has been recovering from a knee procedure he had performed in Philadelphia the middle of August.

As a Saint, Vilma has started in 68 of 69 games played over five years. The three-time Pro Bowl selection has posted 528 tackles, eight sacks, six interceptions, seven fumble recoveries and five forced fumbles during that span.
