Barry Bonds was indicted last week for perjury and obstruction of justice and charged with lying to a federal grand jury about not knowingly using steroids. Prison is more likely for the home run king than the hall of fame after the four-year investigation. The indictment cites 19 occasions Bonds allegedly lied under oath in April 2003. The investigation also turned up positive steroid test results for Bonds, which were found at BALCO facilities. Bonds, 43, denied any accusations his record was tainted by steroids.

Williams’s suspension was extended in April when he failed a drug test after playing in the Canadian Football League. The earliest Williams can play is Nov. 25 against Pittsburgh.
