Terrelle Pryor Asks NFLPA To Appeal Five-Game Suspension, According To Report

The saga surrounding Terrelle Pryor's suspension has been almost as confusing as the punishment itself, and now the Oakland Raiders quarterback will, finally, have the NFLPA file an appeal. In the wake of the suspension, handed down as terms of his eligibility for the NFL, conflicting reports emerged about Pryor's intentions and whether or not he would fight the punishment.

The news on Pryor's plans were passed along by ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Just reported to ESPN: Terrelle Pryor has formally asked NFLPA to appeal his 5-game "suspension."

This does not, it seems, mean Pryor has appealed the suspension yet. Instead, it appears he's asked the NFLPA to work on his behalf in an effort to appeal the suspension, a normal procedure when it comes to discipline.

Pryor's suspension took center-stage when his former coach at Ohio State, Jim Tressel, was hired as a replay assistant by the Indianapolis Colts. Tressel's hire was not run by the league, and only later did the former Ohio State head coach reportedly decide to suspend himself for the first six games of the season.
