MICHAEL CRABTREE of the Oakland Raiders and AQIB TALIB of the Denver Broncos have been suspended without pay for two games each for violations of unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness rules in Sunday's game between the Raiders and Broncos.
NFL Vice President of Football Operations JON RUNYAN issued the suspensions.
Crabtree is suspended for games against the New York Giants and Kansas City Chiefs and will be eligible to return to the Raiders' active roster on Monday, December 11 following the team's December 10 game against Kansas City.
Talib is suspended for games against the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets and will be eligible to return to the Broncos' active roster on Monday, December 11 following the team's December 10 game against the Jets.
Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the suspensions may be appealed within three business days. Appeals are heard and decided by either DERRICK BROOKS or JAMES THRASH, the officers jointly appointed and compensated by the NFL and NFLPA to decide appeals of on-field player discipline.
