The appeal for Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman's four-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs will be held Friday, reports ESPN.com.

Sherman is appealing a positive test for a banned substance that violated the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs and resulted in the four-game suspension, which he appealed allowing him to continue to play.

Sherman has maintained that he did nothing wrong saying that he drank from a bottle a teammate had that contained a crushed Adderall pill. Sherman has 56 tackles, six interceptions and three forced fumbles this season.

"It's gonna get solved and I think at the end of the day it'll get worked out fine," Sherman said last week to Yahoo! Sports.
