Kevin Williams hasn't Heard about Suspension

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams says he has not heard from the NFL about a possible suspension stemming from a weight loss supplement he took three years ago.

Williams reported to training camp on Sunday and joked that he hoped the NFL has forgotten about his case. Williams and former teammate Pat Williams had been embroiled in a long court fight over their positive tests for the banned diuretic bumetanide in 2008. They argued that the supplement StarCaps did not include the ingredient on its label.

In April, the Minnesota Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from Pat Williams. That appeared to clear the way for them to be suspended for the first four games of 2011.

But the new collective bargaining agreement could factor into the decision.
