Grant, Smith Eligible To Play After League Deferred Suspensions


If Kevin and Pat Williams can play then so can Grant and Smith, at least according to the league.

All the aforementioned players are wrapped up in a lawsuit over positive tests for the banned substance Bumetanide, stemming from the players consumption of StarCaps, a weight loss supplement.

The Williams’ have been fighting the suspensions somewhat successfully inside Minnesota Courts while Smith and Grant have been patiently waiting for the NFL to drop the gavel.

Commissioner Roger Goodell has plenty to say.

"“This situation presents several unique and narrow aspects that I believe call for us to put the good of the game ahead of questions of discipline,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a written statement released by the league. “Considerations of fairness, uniform application of our policies, and competitive integrity all support deferring the suspensions at this time. I am not prepared to treat players differently when the same conduct is involved.”"

So the saga continues and yet again we have no resolution, keep it tuned in to whodatdish.com for any new information.
