ESPN is among several outlets reporting that Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma is having knee surgery and will miss the rest of the preseason.

Vilma missed practice Wednesday, making it six of the last eight practices in which he didn't participate.

Sean Payton, as is his normal procedure, has not commented on the injury.

ESPN's report says that the team is hopeful that Vilma will be back for the start of the regular season.
