As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, the Redskins were still waiting for word from the NFL regarding any potential punishment for cornerback DeAngelo Hall. But Coach Mike Shanahan said the team is not expecting a suspension, since the most severe penalties are generally handed down by Tuesday.
“They wouldn’t let somebody practice, a full practice, if somebody was going to be suspended for this week’s game,” Shanahan said. “I don’t believe it’s ever happened before. It’s never happened to me.”
The league’s offices have been closed this week because of Hurricane Sandy, but Shanahan doesn't anticipate the storm would affect the timing of an announcement.
Commissioner Roger Goodell, meantime, said on Wednesday that he expects the league to make a decision on Hall’s punishment in the coming 48 hours.
