Saints Bounty Players Are Reinstated, NFL Confirms

The NFL has confirmed that those players suspended in the alleged New Orleans Saints bounty case are reinstated for the time being. This comes after the players had their suspensions vacated by an appeals panel.

League spokesman Greg Aiello tells the New Orleans Times-Picayune:

"Consistent with the panel's decision, Commissioner Goodell will, as directed, make an expedited determination of the discipline imposed for violating the league's pay-for-performance/bounty rule," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. "Until that determination is made, the four players are reinstated and eligible to play starting this weekend."

The potential for discipline isn't over yet as NFL Network's Albert Breer tweets.

For now, though, this remains a victory for those Saints and former Saints suspended as a result.
