EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota Vikings star defensive tackles Kevin Williams and Pat Williams have gone before the NFL to discuss their positive test for a banned diuretic.
The Williamses were absent from practice Thursday to attend a hearing at the league office in New York. They face four-game suspensions if their appeal is denied. Angelo Wright, the agent for Pat Williams, said he believed it would be another week before they learn of the decision.
Pat Williams has not missed a game since he played for Buffalo in 2001, when a leg injury sidelined him for the last three weeks. Kevin Williams has started 90 of a possible 92 games since he was drafted by Minnesota in 2003. He missed two games due to a sprained knee in 2005.
