    Do you mean they are not related but they are brothers?

    Re: Williams brothers

    They have had their case tied up in court for a long time. Every time it seems like they come to a decision the lawyers on either side appeal it to another court or push back the court date. The last I heard they said they would keep pushing back dates and dodging rulings until at least after this season. Pat might never actually see any suspension time given he is getting toward the latter part of his career. The NFC North blog on ESPN usually has pretty good updates in terms non-lawyers can understand.

    I believe they will be able to play but a federal judge wanted to block the NFL's ruling, so this matter will get dragged on into the next off-season.... (conspiracy theory) but i guess the NFL is protecting the Vikings in more than one way, the other is by only playing one outdoor game in the November and December, in North Carolina, no less.....

    The latest is an appeal filed by the Williams a week or two ago asking a federal judge to permanently block the NFL from issuing a suspension related to the case. The projection is business as usual for 2010 as the case is not expected to be decided until sometime next year.
