The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could get a boost along their defensive line ahead of the NFC Championship Game.
Vea has been out since October after fracturing his ankle. It was initially feared the 25-year-old would miss the remainder of the season. Vea tallied 10 tackles - including three for a loss - and two sacks through five games.
The Bucs will attempt to make their second-ever Super Bowl appearance with a win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
