Vikings WR Simpson appeals pending 3-game ban

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson has appealed a pending three-game suspension for a repeat violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Simpson confirmed Tuesday that he was absent from practice Monday to attend a hearing on his case at league headquarters in New York. Simpson told reporters he "just told them the truth" and that "the records and the facts show what happened."

He acknowledged, however, he was unsure whether his argument would persuade the NFL to reduce or eliminate any punishment.
