Default Glenn suspension overturned

Something that has been overlooked, and rightfully so, with everything that is going on, is that an arbitrator has overturned the New England Patriots year long suspension of wide reciever Terry Glenn. Glenn can return to the field for the Pats fifth game, after he serves his suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

FOXBORO, Mass. -- An arbitrator overturned Terry Glenn's season-long suspension Wednesday, allowing him to rejoin the New England Patriots for their fifth game.

The fourth leading receiver in team history still must complete a four-game NFL suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. His agent, James Gould, said there are no plans to appeal that now.

"We are very gratified," Gould said in a telephone interview from his Cincinnati office. "Terry's looking forward to returning to the club and is excited about the prospect of contributing to the team's success."

Glenn is not allowed to practice or play with the team during his suspension.

The arbitrator's decision cannot be appealed unless the team challenges it in court, said Richard Berthelsen, general counsel of the NFL Players Association.

The Patriots weren't inclined to do that.

Coach Bill Belichick, who suspended Glenn after he stayed away from training camp without permission, said in a statement, "We hope that his desire to be reinstated is a positive sign and evidence of his willingness to contribute to the team this season."

Good news for Pats fans! Can't say it'll help much, though, as this team is pretty dismal already. Anyway, I think this was a good move.

I agree. With all that has been going on, a suspension is the least on peoples' minds.
