Not good news here for the Packers. He’ll still be able to play the second half of the season, but the severity of his suspension seems to be somewhat of a surprise. Though as the article points out, TT and company were well aware of this possibility as they structured the contract in such a way that this suspension won’t hurt the team really at all financially – but it will hurt having a potentially quality player miss half the season. My guess is that someone else (probably Worthy) steps up and makes such an impression that Hargrove will be mostly forgotten by the time he steps on the field in Game 9.
