NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Saints LB Jonathan Vilma is asking a federal judge for a hearing Thursday on his bid to block his season-long suspension stemming from the NFL's bounty investigation.

In a court filing Monday, Vilma's attorneys ask U.S. District Judge Helen "Ginger" Berrigan to hear their request for a temporary restraining order before the Saints' training camp opens on July 23.

Berrigan didn't immediately rule on Vilma's hearing request.

Vilma has said his suspension is without merit and has accused NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell of damaging his reputation and irreparably harming his career.

Vilma wants to attend training camp so he can continue receiving treatment for a knee injury.
