STARCAPS CASE WON’T BE RESOLVED UNTIL AFTER PLAYOFFS
Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that the case of the five NFL players who were suspended for using StarCaps will not be resolved until after the playoffs. Per Schefter, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Magnuson, the federal judge overseeing the case, will not lift the temporary restraining order until a full hearing can be conducted. That means Vikings defensive tackles Pat Williams and Kevin Williams and Saints running back Deuce McAllister and defensive ends Will Smith and Charles Grant will remain active through the postseason. The Associated Press reports that Magnuson asked both parties to propose a schedule by December 22 to file pleadings in the case. If a schedule won’t even be proposed until December 22, this process will, presumably, go well past the Super Bowl.
