Former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is scheduled to testify Friday.
Vilma and Smith traveled to Washington after playing in New Orleans' 23-13 loss at Atlanta on Thursday night.
Neither player was required to attend Friday, but Smith said this week that ``part of the things that we wanted all along was to face our accusers.''
The players' lawyers have the chance to cross-examine Williams as part of the appeals process overseen by former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue.
