Saints LB Wilson suspended

Wilson will be able to practice and play preseason games, but should he make the Saints' roster, he will sit out the team's opener against the Washington Redskins.

The 24-year-old was drafted in the sixth round of the 2011 draft by the Carolina Panthers, but was released from the practice squad after getting arrested for a misdemeanor marijuana possession and speeding in November.
