CBSsports is reporting that a US Circuit Court Judge has blocked the NFL from suspending Kevin Williams and Pat Williams of the Vikings and Charles Grant, Deuce McAllister and Will Smith of the Saints this Sunday. The judge needs more time to go through all the evidence, and in the meantime, the boys can play.
Vikings DTs cleared to play: A federal judge on Friday blocked the NFL from suspending five players for violating the league's anti-doping policy. U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson said he needed more time to consider the case after hearing several hours of arguments from the league and the NFL Players Association. Kevin Williams and Pat Williams of the Vikings and Charles Grant, Deuce McAllister and Will Smith of the Saints were suspended this week for four games each for testing positive for a banned diuretic in the dietary supplement StarCaps. The union argued the NFL didn't properly inform players about the substance. The NFL's attorneys argued that that claim, and others, had been considered and rejected in a process set out by the league's collective bargaining agreement.
Hmmmmm. Sounds a little strange to me, but whatever. I do have the Vikings D starting on my fantasy roster this week :D
I know my Viqueens-hating buddy Mr. IllOrange is not happy!
