The Seattle Seahawks' star cornerback confirmed to NFL.com's Steve Wyche that the appeal of his four-game league suspension for testing positive for Adderrall will be heard Friday.
The NFL hit Sherman and fellow Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner with four-game suspensions last month. Both appealed the punishment, though Browner changed his mind and began to serve his ban starting in Week 14. He is eligible to return for the start of the playoffs should the 9-5 Seahawks advance.
By choosing to appeal, Sherman runs the risk of missing playoff time. Sherman is confident he'll win his appeal. The Seahawks better hope he's right.
