Vilma Activated!!
 
New Orlreans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma activated, could make season debut Sunday - NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN

However, tight end Jimmy Graham did not make the trip because of his sprained right ankle.

The Saints have terminated the contract of receiver Greg Camarillo to make room for Vilma, who is coming back from left knee surgery and is appealing his season-long suspension in the NFL's bounty probe of the Saints.

Too bad about Camarillo. He's gotta be feeling like a yo-yo right about now. I hope the Saints can get him on the roster again soon.

It'll be nice to see him in pads for a change even if he doesn't take too many snaps in the game.

He wouldn't be on the roster if they didn't feel he could make an impact.

This will be a very interesting game. Where will Vilma play? Will he just be Lofton's back-up and play only on passing downs? Or will he play one of the outside spots?

I'm hoping we see him at WLB and Lofton at MLB.

I can't imagine Vilma sees a ton of snaps until he gets back into game shape. Maybe some 3rd-and-long, nickle packages, etc. Let's face it, he had slowed a step (or two) before the injury. Keeping my expectations tempered.

My thoughts too.

Just one "Knock him the #### out" will be enough for me. Just one.

Sure, but I do think that you can't expect him to dominate in his first full contact game in such a long time. Naturally, they expect him to play, but the situation at LB probably made his activation even more prevalent at this specific point in time. I'd hesitate putting too much on his shoulders this Sunday, because he certainly will have some cobwebs to shake off before he will be at his normal high level. It could be that his leadership role can make an bigger impact than his actual performance on the field.

Well, hopefully it gives the defense a lift ... too bad Camarillo had to go, I was hoping to see a little more of him.
