Federal Judge Denies Saints LB Jonathan Vilma's Motion To Rehab At Team's Facility
Federal judge Helen Berrigan denied a motion by New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma on Thursday to expedite a decision to allow him to rehabilitate his injured left knee at the Saints facility. The move was expected. The NFL said this week that Vilma, however, could do rehab work outside the facility with the Saints training staff. Earlier this week, Berrigan ruled on Jonathan Vilma's motion to expedite his temporary restraining order hearing, moving it up from Aug. 1 to Thursday. Berrigan moved the date up to ensure that the NFL has time to file for dismissal or summary judgement, noting that the league asserts Vilma can receive medical care from the Saints training staff at a private facility.
