The Personal Conduct Policy and the Collective Bargaining Agreement say nothing about when a decision must be made by Peter Harvey in the appeal of Deshaun Watson‘s six-game suspension. The only requirement is that the process must be “expedited.”

There’s one specific wrinkle that could delay the expedition process. Although the policy and the CBA do not contemplate a hearing on appeal, it’s possible that the NFL Players Association has requested one.

Neither the league nor the union has answered the question of whether a hearing was requested, or whether a hearing will occur.
