McAllister, Smith face highs and lows of life

Two Saints awaiting word from a judge on whether their four-game suspensions would be upheld experienced the highs and lows that life can offer this week.

Saints running back Deuce McAllister, one of the Saints facing suspension, lost his grandfather this week. McAllister missed practice Wednesday to be with his family during their difficult time.

Meanwhile, another Saint awaiting his suspension, defensive end Will Smith, witnessed the birth of his son, Wynter. Smith missed practice Tuesday before rejoining the team.

Each will have different thoughts during Thursday night’s game. Each experienced a moment this week he will not soon forget.
