The NFL has suspended six players for four games apiece for using a banned substance.

The players are Saints defensive linemen Charles Grant (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/tag/CharlesGrant/) and Will Smith (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/tag/WillSmith/), Saints running back Deuce McAllister (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/tag/DeuceMcAllister/), Vikings defensive tackles Kevin Williams (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/tag/KevinWilliams/) and Pat Williams (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/tag/PatWilliams/) and Texans long snapper Brian Pittman (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/tag/BrianPittman/).

The players all tested positive for the banned substance Bumetanide. They all appealed the suspensions, saying that Bumetanide is an ingredient in the over-the-counter supplement Star Caps, and that the NFL did not tell players that Star Caps is banned. But the NFL turned down their appeals.

They're testing.

Kevin and Pat Williams are a definite loss for Minnesota. That's their D-line right there.

Maybe now the Lions can beat the Vikings.
