New Orleans Saints inside linebacker Jonathan Vilma is going to begin practicing next week following the bye.
Vilma made the announcement via his official Twitter account.
Vilma remains on injured reserve-designated to return following knee surgery during the preseason.
He's eligible to return for the Saints' game against the New York Jets after practicing for the next few weeks.
Vilma could provide a run-stopping presence for the NFC South club.
