The Vikings' Pat Williams and Kevin Williams were the winners of a court decision Friday morning in Minnesota, as a Hennepin County judge Gary Larson ruled that the NFL cannot suspend the DT tandem until their case is ruled upon by the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
This prolongs the drama of the Williamses, who were originally suspended four games apiece by the NFL after failing drug tests in 2008. An earlier injunction by the Minnesota courts has allowed the pair to avoid suspension for the past two seasons.
However, the NFL has continued to remain firm in its belief that the Vikings' teammates should be suspended — whether they are sidelined for the same four games or staggering the games in some manner.
