Williamses may face suspension

Minneapolis Star Tribune - [Full Article]

Minnesota DT Vikings Kevin and DT Pat Williams may be forced to serve four-game suspensions even though the NFL is their employer and violated their rights under state labor laws, Hennepin County Judge Gary Larson ruled Thursday.

The players were granted a court hearing and will ask Larson to keep in place a restraining order that allows the Williamses to play pending their appeals.

Fantasy Impact: 

If the suspension holds, this is a big blow to what is a top-notch fantasy defense, especially at stopping the run. Also, running backs you might otherwise bench could be playable options for any weeks the Wiliamses don't play.
