MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The Minnesota Vikings' Kevin and Pat Williams have gone to court to block their suspensions for violating the NFL's anti-doping policy.
The star defensive tackles are seeking a temporary restraining order in Hennepin County District Court in Minneapolis.
The Williamses, who aren't related, were among six players suspended by the NFL on Tuesday. All six were punished for using a diuretic that can serve as a masking agent for steroids.
The Vikings are in first place in the NFC North at 7-5. If the suspensions aren't blocked, they face the rest of the regular season without the anchors of a defense that ranks second against the run.
