The San Diego Chargers and Pro Bowl safety Rodney Harrison will appeal his one-game suspension.
The play in question occurred on the Raiders' first drive of the first quarter on an incomplete pass on 3rd and 4 at the Chargers' 9-yard line. The play was ruled an incomplete pass to Jerry Rice and no foul was called. No foul was called!
"The play was not a foul, is not a foul, and will never be a foul under the current NFL playing rules," said Head Coach Marty Schottenheimer.
"Rodney Harrison loves the game and plays it the way it's supposed to be played."
"We definitely will appeal this sanction. Once the appeal process takes place, we're confident they'll arrive at a different conclusion."
A suspension of Harrison would mean he would miss the upcoming home game on Nov. 3rd against the Jets, in a game they must win to establish their second half dominance, and a game the Chargers had hoped to have all their talent, injured and healthy, available for.
