Bounty appeals hearing postponed

The SportsXchange

Tuesday's scheduled 'bounty' suspension appeals hearing in New York was postponed due to a hurricane expected to hit the East Coast.

A source told NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk that former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue, who is deciding on the matter, has "adjourned" the hearing. A new date for the appeal is not determined. Tagliabue could make an announcement Monday.

A judge in Louisiana is still expected to proceed Monday with the briefing process on the suspended players' attempt to recuse Tagliabue from ruling in the appeal.

Four players are appealing their suspensions in the 'bounty' scandal. New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith will play Sunday at the Denver Broncos. Former Saints linebacker Scott Fujita (now with the Cleveland Browns) is on injured reserve. Defensive end Anthony Hargrove is not with a team.
