METAIRIE, La. ― Linebacker Jonathan Vilma picked up a veterans day off Thursday, resting his surgically repaired left knee ahead of Saturday’s NFC divisional-round playoff game at San Francisco.

Vilma said he feels fine and will be ready for the game.

Receiver Lance Moore (left hamstring), meanwhile, was listed as DNP for his eighth straight day despite saying a day earlier he felt hopeful about his participation against the 49ers.

Safety Roman Harper (right ankle) was limited a day after being listed as DNP and linebacker Jonathan Casillas (right knee) also was limited.

Tight end John Gilmore (turf toe) sat out, as well.
