The New Orleans Saints defense will get a boost on Sunday night when they take on the Detroit Lions. Jonathan Vilma plays a strong role as a leader on the New Orleans defense not to mention the production he provides at linebacker. After missing the last four games with a knee injury, Vilma will return to the field tonight for the nationally televised matchup with the Lions.
Cornerback Jabari Greer has also been nursing a knee injury but he is expected to help bolster the Saints defensive backfieldh against the Lions. The New Orleans offense heads into the game in pretty good shape considering it is week 13 in the NFL and they will be happy to see those defensive playmakers return to the field.
Here is the inactive list released by the Saints.
Saints Inactives: RB Chris Ivory, DB Johnny Patrick, OT Will Robinson, TE Mike Higgins, WR Adrian Arrington, DE Turk McBride, OLB Martez Wilson
