Report: Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s appeal to be heard Dec. 14
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s appeal of a four-game suspension will take place on Dec. 14, reports ESPN.com.
Sherman and fellow starting cornerback, Brandon Browner, both tested positive for Adderall and the NFL handed down the suspensions for violation of the league’s performance enhancing drug policy. Browner does not have a date set for his appeal.
Sherman and Browner will play Sunday’s game at home against the Arizona Cardinals.
USA Today reported that Sherman accidentally took the drug by drinking from a bottle into which a teammate poured a crushed Adderall pill.
The Seahawks are 7-5 after Sunday’s 23-17 overtime victory at Chicago and are in the sixth and final playoff spot in the NFC. Sherman has 48 tackles, four interceptions and one sack this season.
