(AP) -- Two people familiar with the situation tell The Associated Press that Tom Brady's appeal of his four-game suspension for his role in the deflated footballs scandal won't be heard by Wednesday's 10-day deadline.
Both sources spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because no date for the appeal has been set. The collective bargaining agreement calls for it to be heard within 10 days. However, the league and the players' union can agree on delaying the hearing. The two sides don't agree on much else.
The union asked Commissioner Roger Goodell to recuse himself from hearing the appeal because it said he lacked impartiality and he would be called as a witness.
