The NFL Players Association filed a lawsuit Thursday to block five of the six player suspensions for violating the league's anti-doping policy.
The suit filed in federal court here is on behalf of Kevin Williams and Pat Williams of the Minnesota Vikings, and Charles Grant, Deuce McAllister and Will Smith of the New Orleans Saints.
Deuce McAllister of the New Orleans Saints waits to be introduced before playing the San Francisco 49ers in September 2008 at the Superdome. The National Football League suspended a half dozen players after they failed doping tests, league officials announced on Tuesday.
