The lawyer for three New Orleans Saints players facing suspension says none of them took steroids. The three were accused of taking a banned diurectic and went before an NFL appeals hearing Tuesday.
David Cornwell represents running back Deuce McAllister and defensive linemen Will Smith and Charles Grant. He said the doctor who administers the steroid program testified that he did not inform players that the substance they took contained bumetanide.
Bumetanide is a diuretic used in weight loss and is considered a masking agent for steroids.
