NEW ORLEANS (AP)

The NFL Players Association has asked a federal judge for a temporary restraining order that would allow players suspended in connection with the NFL's bounty investigation to rejoin their teams in time to play regular season openers.

The union, which filed the motion Tuesday on behalf of New Orleans defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita, and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove, argues the players will suffer irreparable harm if they are forced to miss games while their case against the league proceeds.

Suspended Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma already had filed a similar motion when his full-season suspension began earlier. The other three players' suspensions began this week.

The players ultimately want their suspensions thrown out because they argue the disciplinary process was fundamentally flawed and unfair.
