Report: Sherman’s appeal hearing set for Friday
By Brady Henderson
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s appeal hearing of his four-game suspension is set for Friday.
It’s unclear how that might impact Sherman’s availability for the Seahawks’ Sunday night game against San Francisco two days later. According to Schefter, there is no indication of when the decision on the appeal will be made. Sherman is eligible to play until a decision is made.
Sherman and fellow cornerback Brandon Browner both faced four-game suspensions for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Browner has served two games of his suspension.
In other Seahawks news, the team announced Monday it has signed rookie defensive end Monte Taylor to the practice squad, releasing wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei to make room.
Seattle also reinstated rookie defensive back Winston Guy from the suspended list. Guy, a sixth-round pick, missed the past four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
