Saints hold out Vilma for second straight game

BY foxsports • November 13, 2011

The Saints are without linebacker Jonathan Vilma and the Falcons are missing starting safety William Moore for Sunday's game with first place on the line in the NFC South.

Vilma is missing his second straight game with a sore left knee. Jo-Lonn Dunbar is starting for Vilma at middle linebacker.

New Orleans nickel back Patrick Robinson (stomach pain) also is inactive.

Running back Mark Ingram returned from a heel injury. The Saints have Chris Ivory inactive instead of carrying a fourth running back behind Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles.

Moore (quadriceps) and left tackle Sam Baker (back) were replaced by James Sanders and Will Svitek, respectively. Baker is missing his third straight game.

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is starting after tweaking his right hamstring this week.
