This is a strange one.
On Tuesday, 49ers standout nickel cornerback K’Waun Williams was suspended for two games for violating the league’s performance enhancing substances policy. On Wednesday, that ruling was reportedly rescinded by the league do to issues with testing procedures.
The NFL has rescinded #49ers CB K’Waun Williams’ two-game PED suspension because of issues with the testing procedures, sources tell me and @RapSheet. Williams stands by the fact he has never violated the PED policy.

All this means that Williams can apparently return to the field whenever he is healthy. Unfortunately, that may not be for a while considering Williams is still recovering from a high ankle sprain that could shelve him for the remainder of the season.
It’s been a tough year for Williams, who’s already missed four games due to injury in a contract year, so this news will come as a welcome surprise for a player who has denied he’s ever violated PED policy.
