StarCaps suspensions end for Kevin Williams, Will Smith
The StarCaps case truly comes to an end now as Kevin Williams and Will Smith can return from two-game suspensions this week.
Williams returns to the 0-2 Vikings, who have been reeling without him. Smith will aid the Saints, who didn’t look like they missed him one beat in harassing Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler on Sunday.
The time off helped Williams heal from plantar fasciitis.
“The rest helped my foot, but not my mind,” Williams said, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “We're 0-2 right now.
"I was here on the couch, yelling at the screen.”
The Vikings and Saints have until Wednesday to make necessary roster moves to activate the defensive linemen. They’ll practice for the first time then.
