According to the ruling, handed down Tuesday afternoon, New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma will sit out for the entire 2012 season (no change), Saints defensive end Will Smith for four games (no change), Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita for one game (formerly three games), and free-agent defensive end Anthony Hargrove for seven games (formerly eight games).
