The New Orleans Saints have place linebacker Jonathan Vilma on injured reserve, officially ending his 2013 season and possibly his career.

It looks like Katherine Terrell of the Times-Pic was the first to report the news:

Don't think any Saints fans are surprised by this move. Most of us saw this coming. Vilma hasn't been fully healthy for quite some time.

If this is in fact the last we'll ever see of Vilma in a Saints uniform, it's truly a sad day. We wish him the best of luck in any and all future endeavors... unless it's with the Falcons.

The Saints signed cornerback Chris Carr to fill the empty roster spot.
