NFL appealing Deshaun Watson suspension

The NFL officially filed an appeal on Wednesday. The NFL is seeking indefinite banishment for at least one year, with the possibility of conditional reinstatement. The NFL is also looking for a significant monetary fine.

An interesting side piece is that there is a possibility that Deshaun Watson could be on the field for week 1. This would come if the NFLPA goes to federal court over an increased NFL suspension. The NFLPA would seek a temporary restraining order, and the question then would be when this restraining order would kick in.
