Scott Fujita Suspension: Browns LB Unlikely To Meet With NFL Until After Next 2 Games

Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita likely won't meet with NFL officials concerning his role in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal until after the Browns' next two games. Fujita had planned to have a video conference with the NFL on Tuesday, but the league told him on Monday that they'd rather have a face-to-face meeting. With the Browns traveling to Baltimore for a Thursday game with the Ravens next week it is likely that the meeting will take place sometime after that game.

Fujita was initially suspended three games for his role in the bounty program, but an appeals panel recently overturned the suspensions given to the four players in the matter. Commissioner Roger Goodell plans to meet with each of the four players.

Fujita made his season debut in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals and practiced on Wednesday for the first time this season since injuring his knee in a preseason game.
