A league source told NFL Insider Adam Schefter the NFL expects to rule on Terrelle Pryor's appeal of his five-game suspension sometime during the week after Game 3. That could be up to 2 weeks after the hearing. You have to wonder if this is really about just sticking it to Pryor because he agreed to not appeal the suspension as a condition to letting him in the supplemental draft.

However, Terrelle received a lot of pressure from the players union, other players, and the Raiders to appeal. NFL players felt that the suspension set a precedent that they didn't like. The Raiders just wanted him available to practice and eventually play if needed.

Even if they reduced the suspension, he will already have missed 3 games and 3 weeks of practice. So, the maximum reduction can be only 2 games.

Seems like the NFL is playing hardball.

At this point it's not a huge deal, but yup it would be nice if they could reduce it by a week or two. Then again if Campbell struggles we'll be all come on let him back already! Wink

They took their sweet time and in the end just upheld the 5 game suspension. I guess I was hopeful but wasn't expecting much.
