If the suspension is upheld, Pouncey will miss the rematch with the Browns at Heinz Field on December 1st. That game was flexed by the NFL from a 4:25 p.m. kickoff to a 1:00 p.m. start on Monday.
Browns suspended players Myles Garrett and Larry Ogunjobi also appealed. Ogunjobi’s appeal was heard Monday, while Garrett’s appeal will be heard Wednesday by the league. All of the hearings are taking place in New York City.
