The New Orleans Saints have moved linebacker Jonathan Vilma from their physically unable to perform list to the active roster, meaning he could play for the first time this season on Sunday at Tampa Bay.

YOU READY?

The NFL season is hitting a higher gear and we have all the best images from Week 7.

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.

His appeal hearing, and those of three other players facing suspensions of various lengths, has been scheduled for Oct. 30.

Former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue has been appointed as arbitrator for the appeal hearings.
