Lawsuit filed by NFLPA for blocking bansThe NFL Players Association has filed a lawsuit for blocking the suspensions handed to five players.

The suit was filed recently in a United States District Court and carried out in response to penalties handed down to Pat Williams and Kevin Williams of the Minnesota Vikings and Deuce McAllister, Charles Grant and Will Smith of the New Orleans Saints.

The players were suspended after testing positive for a banned diuretic (Bumetanide) that can mask the presence of other substances, including steroids.
