New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman appealed his suspension on Monday, but no decision was immediately reached.
According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, a ruling may not come until next week.
Pelissero said if Edelman wins he could have the suspension vacated, and a loss could mean he can fight it in federal court. Edelman retained prominent attorney Alex Spiro to assist in his defense. Spiro, based out of New York, has represented several celebrities, including the late Aaron Hernandez, rapper Bobby Shmurda, and NBA players J.R. Smith and Thabo Sefolosha.
