Goodell will not hear Peterson's appeal next month

Star Tribune Sports - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 14:38
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will not hear running back Adrian Peterson’s appeal in two weeks. Instead, he has appointed Harold Henderson to hear the appeal, though it might not make a difference. “Under Article 46 (Commissioner Discipline), appeals of discipline for off-field conduct are heard and decided by the commissioner or his designee,” a league spokesman said. “Harold Henderson has been designated as the hearing officer for this appeal. Harold has served for many years as a hearing officer for Article 46 discipline.” And Henderson, who in the past served as NFL Executive Vice President for Labor Relations and Chairman of the NFL Management Council Executive Committee, has often sided with the league. The latest example of this was earlier this year when he upheld the league’s 10-game ban of Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon after his latest violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. The hearing for the appeal of Peterson’s suspension is scheduled for December 2.

Floyd and Kalil both questionable but hoping to play

Star Tribune Sports - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 14:17
Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd is officially listed on the injury report as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Packers even though Floyd says his injured knee “feels good” today. Floyd banged knees with a teammate in practice Wednesday. An MRI showed that there was no major damage. But Floyd was unable to practice yesterday or today. He was in good spirits in the locker room, though, and shared a good laugh with reporters when I asked him about the crutches that had been leaning up against his locker stall the past two days. Floyd glanced back at them and said unconvincingly, “No, they’re not my crutches.” “Yeah, right,” said a couple of reporters while the rest of us chuckled. “Somebody must have left them there,” Floyd said with a grin before joining in the laughter. Floyd indicated that he would like to play but said that the decision will be up to head coach Mike Zimmer and the team’s medical staff. “It’s all in Coach’s hands,” he said. “I go as he go.” As for left tackle Matt Kalil, who missed practice today, Zimmer said that he is dealing with a “minor aggravation.” Zimmer would not say where, but it was listed as a knee injury on the injury report. Kalil, of course, had minor knee surgery in the offseason. He is listed as questionable for Sunday, but on his way out of the locker room he said he expects to play. Running back Matt Asiata has been ruled out with a concussion. Wide receivers Greg Jennings (rib) and Jarius Wright (hamstring) are both questionable for Sunday. Running back Jerick McKinnon (lower back), outside linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), offensive tackle Mike Harris (ankle), cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle), defensive Everson Griffen (neck), tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin) are among those officially listed as probable to take on the Packers. Cornerback Captain Munnerlyn was excused from practice today for personal reasons.
