T. Johnson's Suspension Won't Be Reduced
PHILADELPHIA--NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he won't reduce the suspension of Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Tank Johnson.
Johnson, formerly of the Chicago Bears, is serving an eight-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Goodell has permitted Johnson to begin practicing with the Cowboys, and he said today that was rewarding Johnson for abiding by the terms of his suspension. But Goodell said he won't cut any games off Johnson's suspension. When he suspended Johnson, Goodell made the suspension reviewable after six games.
The Cowboys have a bye this week. Johnson will have to sit out one more game after that and then will be eligible to play against the New York Giants on Nov. 11.
