Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor already has served two games of a five-game suspension. It now appears that he’ll serve at least three.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the league has not yet resolved the appeal that was filed by Pryor and heard last week by Commissioner Roger Goodell.
With preparations commencing today for the Raiders’ home opener against the Jets and with the league typically providing answers on suspensions or non-suspensions by Tuesday, it’s a fairly safe bet that the appeal won’t be resolved in time for Pryor to participate in Sunday’s game.
Of course, it’s unlikely that he’d play. But the suspension keeps him both from practicing and from getting paid. If his appeal ultimately prevails, he’ll get his money. The practice time is something that never can be recovered.
