Recommendation: This is just confirmation of what was already known, as Sherman tweeted early Thursday that he won his appeal. Arbiter Robert E. Wallace said, "In this case, after weighing the differing testimonies of the only two people with first-hand knowledge, Mr. Sherman and Mr. (Mark) Cook (the tester), I do not believe the burden has been met that the departures, especially in the actual collection of the sample, did not materially affect the validity of the positive test." With the suspension void, Sherman will be available for Week 17 and beyond. This is a huge boost for the Seahawks' defense.
