If I'm being executed, my last meal would be whatever will result in the biggest postmortem s*** possible. Lots of fiber and coffee.

Payton said team is comfortable with Jo-Lonn Dunbar, who is Vilma's backup. Dunbar has been in system several seasons.

Mike Triplett
Obviously bad news for if Vilma can't play, though he does have an experienced back-up in Jo-Lonn Dunbar, who played well vs. Bears.

WWL-TV Sports
HC Payton said Vilma didn't have a setback. Said Vilma's recovery didn't progress as quickly as originally thought it would.

Mike Triplett
The full injury report: Marques Colston and Garrett Hartley are out; Vilma doubtful, Porter questionable, everyone else probable.

Jeff Duncan
If Vilma can't go, Jo-Lonn Dunbar would start at MLB. Scott Shanle & Will Herring would probably start outside.

WWL-TV Sports
. Nope. Different positions. Prob. more 4-3 instead of 3-4 this week I'd imagine. Smith's return will likely affect Charleston.

WWL-TV Sports
Dunbar on Vilma: "This guy has been immortal for, like, three years. And this guy, when he hurts something, he still plays. "

WWL-TV Sports
Dunbar on Vilma: "It’s definitely a surprise if he doesn’t play, but I’m looking forward to him being out there & trying to run this thing."

WWL-TV Sports
. I'd say probably a no-go. It's hard to go from DNP/Doubtful to playing. Though Vilma could certainly be the guy to do it.
