Will Smith and Charles Grant can play for now as per Saints CoachWith no news coming from the NFL about the future of Will Smith and Charles Grant, Saints coach Sean Payton intends to play them in the season opener against Detroit on this Sunday. It is worth noting here that the two players are facing the possibility of a four-game suspension and among a handful of NFL players who have tested positive last year for bumetanide (used to mask steroids and a banned diuretic).

It has been argued by the accused players that their suspensions are improper as the NFL was already aware of the fact that bumetanide had already been detected in the over-the-counter StarCaps weight-loss supplement and it was the NFL that failed to inform the players during a hotline to check if the supplement was allowed to be used.
