Vilma, who currently is rehabbing an injured knee, will be eligible to return after Week 6.
Vilma, along with Saints defensive end Will Smith, had their suspensions overturned Sept. 7 by an arbitration appeal panel. Both players had been suspended by the NFL for their involvement in the Saints' "bounty" program.
UPDATE: Vilma expressed disappointment Monday in having to watch from the sidelines for the time being.
