It has been a few weeks since there has been any Dustin Byfuglien news but today in his 31 Thoughts article Elliotte Friedman indicated that a decision on whether Byfuglien will contest the suspension by the Jets should be imminent:

The Jets suspended Dustin Byfuglien on Sept. 21. Normally, grievances must be filed within 60 days. That would put us at today: Wed., Nov. 20. However, one source indicated that the clock might not have started ticking on that specific date (weekend? Not officially paid yet? I’m not sure). Whatever the case, a decision on whether or not to contest Byfuglien’s suspension is coming soon.
