Williams’ Trial Date Set for June 15th

A federal judge has set June 15th as the trial date for Kevin Williams and Pat Williams, who tested positive for a banned substance last year. The players are seeking monetary damages in addition to having a four-game suspension from the NFL overturned. The players’ union has said the league didn’t properly inform the players that a supplement called StarCaps contained the banned diuretic bumetanide.

Bumetanide can be used as a masking agent for steroids. The defensive tackles were suspended late last season but got an injunction in mid-December that allowed them to play in the postseason.

The suspensions would begin next season if they are upheld.
