Although the league is likely to wait until the legal proceedings have concluded before making its final decision, Kamara’s suspension is expected to last six games. Kamara is scheduled to go to court in August, so he won’t be suspended until after that.
The NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy, which mandates a minimum six-game suspension for incidents involving felony battery, would be in line with Kamara’s six-game suspension.
