Bradley Handwerger / WWLTV.com Sports Reporter

METAIRIE, La. – Running back Mark Ingram and linebacker Jonathan Vilma both sat out practice Wednesday, the only two players to miss practice ahead of Sunday’s home game against Tampa Bay.

Ingram missed his fourth consecutive practice with a bruised right heel while Vilma was out once again with a left knee injury.

Vilma has missed practices for much of the past six weeks but has played in all but one game since the Week 2 injury.

Two key players returned full to practice, though – right tackle Zach Strief (right knee) and tight end David Thomas (concussion). Both have been out since their Sept. 25 injuries in the Houston game

The only worry is he's played like this even when healthy.

I just don't know why he grades out well in pass defense but grades out poorly in run defense. I'd think a bum knee would affect his pass coverage skills moreso than run defense skills.

From what I've seen he seems to be either a step late or he's over-running run plays. Its definitely not the Jonathan Vilma we're all used to seeing.
