08:01 AM ET 11.26 | On top of a Sunday meltdown in Miami, Seattle may have more significant player personnel issues. [Seahawks] starting cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are facing four-game suspensions for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, according to league sources. Both Sherman and Browner tested positive and are appealing their suspensions, insisting they are innocent, according to sources. The appeal could be heard as early as this week. Upon the team's return to Seattle, the Seahawks released a statement saying they "are aware" of the report. The absence of both Sherman and Browner would be a huge blow to the Seahawks (6-5), who dropped a 24-21 decision Sunday to the Miami Dolphins but still are competing for a playoff spot.

"Mr. Commissioner, we lost to the Dolphins. How could we have been taking performance enhancing drugs and lose to the Dolphins?"

This should help knock them out of the playoff picture...

With a four game suspension at this time of the year, the playoffs are a thing of the past for them! The Team should also suspend or fine them, they don't deserve to come back and play!!!

By appealing the suspension, the 4 games could be the end of the season into the playoffs.

Bears-Cards-Bills-Niners-Rams to go. No, these guys want to get their suspensions over with sooner rather than later.

Cards, Bills, Niners and Rams would be the stretch to have the suspensions play out. Three very winnable games and one they probably don't win either way.

The "four-game suspension" policy is BS. It should be one-and-done.

I'm sure Carroll (Reggie Bush's benefits) knew absolutely nothing about it.

They will both go to the fed judge in New Orleans and he will tie things up till the summer when they can miss the pre-season instead.

The test also revealed that both players were pregnant.

Yes, unless they have a sure-fire get-out-of-jail free card they should just do their time. But the guys who get caught are usually not the brightest ones.

I wonder if it is Aderall again? Or is it a Star Caps situation--"honest, we didn't know that stuff was in it, it wasn't on the label..."?

Ban them for life, or give them a bonus. NFL time to take a stand

Could the FN staffers have made an effort to find a photo that has someone from that club looking at least a little sorry for the suspensions?

Naw, that would be like ... you know ... working.
