New Orleans Saints linebackers Jonathan Vilma and Jonathan Casillas both missed Wednesday's practice, as they both deal with knee injuries. Rookie running back Mark Ingram (pictured left) continues to miss practice as he battles a turf toe injury.

Vilma has played the last two weeks, but has missed a few weekly practices as he recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery. Casillas and Ingram both missed last Sunday's win over the Titans.

Defensive End Turk McBride, who has missed the last few games with an injured ankle, returned to practice today on a limited basis.

Tight End Jimmy Graham (back), cornerback Tracy Porter (wrist), defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis (hamstring), and linebacker Scott Shanle (shoulder) all practiced fully, despite their nagging injuries.

The Saints play on the road for the last time this regular season on Sunday as they battle the Minnesota Vikings. Kickoff is set for noon.
