Saints Bounty Players Eligible To Play In Week 1

The players suspended in the New Orleans Saints bounty case have seen their suspensions overturned, according to a number of reports. Those four players will be eligible to play in Week 1 this weekend.

The four players who had their suspensions overturned were Jonathan Vilma (full season), Anthony Hargrove (8 games), Will Smith (4 games) and Scott Fujita (3 games).

Vilma and Smith are still with the Saints, which is a big boost for them this weekend against the Washington Redskins. Fujita is now with the Browns and he recently said he is "preparing as if he is playing" in Week 1. Hargrove is a free agent after being released by the Green Bay Packers earlier this offseason.

The Saints host the Redskins on Sunday at 1 p.m. on Fox.
