The Associated Press reported at 10:26 this morning central time that the Appeals Court ruled in favor of the Vikings defensive linemen, Pat and Kevin Williams (not related).

The ruling comes on account that the two Vikings violated the league's anti-doping policy.

The NFL had tried to suspend the Williamses for four games after they both tested positive for a banned diuretic during training camp in 2008.

They had taken the over-the-counter weight loss supplement StarCaps, which did not state on the label that it contained the diuretic—which can mask the presence of steroids.

Neither Williams tested positive for steroids.
