Report: Seahawks CB Richard Sherman’s appeal to be heard Friday

With cornerback Brandon Browner currently serving a four-game suspension, the Seahawks are now waiting to learn the fate of fellow corner Richard Sherman, who also reportedly tested positive for a performance enhancing substance.

Initially reports surfaced that Sherman’s appeal was to be heard last Friday, but that didn’t happen, and Sherman said he never knew of an appeal date being set for Dec. 14. Now, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Sherman’s appeal will be heard this Friday.

Schefter followed that up saying, “If appeal upholds CB Richard Sherman’s suspension Friday, he would be out vs SF, but there is no indication of timing on an appeal decision.”

However, it is worth pointing out that the league generally announced suspensions at the beginning of a week, not a couple days prior to a game. So unless the NFL decides to change things up, it seems the more likely scenario would be that if Sherman loses his appeal, he would start the suspension after the 49ers game.
