On Monday, a U.S. Appeals Court reinstated Tom Brady's 4-game Deflategate suspension. The court overturned a lower judge's ruling and sided with the league so that means if the NFL wants to, they can suspend Brady for the first 4 games of the 2016 season.

The Court ruled a 2-1 decision in New York:

"We hold that the Commissioner properly exercised his broad discretion under the collective bargaining agreement and that his procedural ruling were properly grounded in that agreement and did not deprive Brady of fundamental fairness."

If the NFL does decide to suspend Brady, he will miss that games against the Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills.

Jimmy Garoppolo would be the quarterback in Brady's absence.
