There has been a great deal of rumors surround Jonathan Vilma in the past 24 hours. Vilma boarded a flight yesterday to Philadelphia, and as Adam Schefter reported shortly ago,
Saints ILB Jonathan Vilma is undergoing knee surgery Thursday and is out for the rest of the preseason.
I say crazy rumors, because some speculated that Vilma was going to be traded to Philadelphia. Don’t believe me? Search it! Vilma personally tweeted that these rumors were completely false.
Now we know the truth, and we only wish the best for Vilma, and his speedy recovery. If all goes well, according to Schefter, Vilma will be ready to go for the Dome Opener against Atlanta. Vilma had problems with the knee last season, and aside from the suspensions, it was something that kept him out of action until Week 6 against Tampa Bay.
