Beckham's appeal of 1-game suspension to be heard Wednesday
NEW YORK - Odell Beckham Jr. is going to have his appeal of his one-game suspension heard by a former NFL receiver.
The NFL said Tuesday that former Washington and Philadelphia wide out James Thrash will be the hearing officer for the appeal by the New York Giants receiver. The hearing will be held at an undisclosed time and place.
Thrash and Derrick Brooks are the hearing officers jointly appointed by the NFL and the players' association.
The league suspended Beckham on Monday for his conduct against Carolina, when he drew three personal foul penalties. The league cited "multiple violations of safety-related playing rules."
The Giants (6-8) face a key game on Sunday night at Minnesota. If Beckham's appeal is turned down, the Giants will be without their best offensive option.
