NEW ORLEANS, LA – OCTOBER 30: Kenny Vaccaro /

Nola.com has reported that Vaccaro is awaiting a B sample to see if a suspension will be brought down. There is only a suspension if a second sample is tested and comes up positive. The whole story seems like a raw deal for Vaccaro because the news broke about a suspension before an actual suspension was even given out. Vaccaro had this to say.

"“We got a letter, but that’s just a preliminary letter that it could be a possible something. But there have been mistakes before. It would be frustrating because we’re on a run. We’ve won four of the last five…but at the same time, it is what it is and we’re working it out right now.”"

Why this story was broke on the NFL Network before a suspension is simply irresponsible. The story did specify that the NFL was awaiting the results of the second sample before a decision would be made. However, this seems pretty unfair to Vaccaro to give the perception that he is guilty of something. Yet the second test could actually clear him of all wrongdoings. Saints’ fans will have to wait. Vaccaro will be allowed to play tomorrow though against the Broncos.
