Post Federal judge blocks NFL's suspension of 5

Quote:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A federal judge has blocked the NFL from suspending five players for violating the league's anti-doping policy.

U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson said Friday 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 Minnesota Vikings, and Charles Grant, Deuce McAllister and Will Smith of the New Orleans Saints all were suspended this week for four games. They tested positive for a banned diuretic in the dietary supplement StarCaps.

The union has argued the NFL didn't properly inform players about the substance. The NFL's attorneys argued that claim, and others, had been considered and rejected in a process set out by the league's collective bargaining agreement.

What about Pittman?

Didn't he test positive for the same substance?

He tested positive for another diuretic not coming from StarCaps....

Sources told ESPN senior analyst Chris Mortensen that Pittman did not use StarCaps but tested positive for another banned diuretic.
