Roger Goodell says DeAngelo Hall punishment could be announced Wednesday or Thursday

A decision will be made in the near future as to whether DeAngelo Hall will face supplemental discipline for his ejection from a Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers for arguing with an official.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell stated in an interview with Adam Schein and Rich Gannon on SiriusXM Blitz on Wednesday afternoon that a decision is going to be made in the near future on any discipline measures that will be taken with Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall.

According to the commissioner, a decision will be announced either later on Wednesday or on Thursday.

The league is debating punishment for Hall following a profanity-laced exchange with head linesman Dana McKenzie that resulted in Hall's ejection from the Redskins' Week 8 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The incident is being reviewed by the league's football operations staff, who will ultimately be making the decision on any discipline.

Hall contended on Tuesday that McKenzie was equally at fault for what transpired on the field and stated that the official was dishing out insults. Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan stated on Wednesday afternoon that he does not believe Hall will be suspended, as the league typically suspends players on Tuesdays and not after a full team practice on Wednesday.
