Brady is appealing his four-game suspension as a result of the investigation into deflated footballs prior to the AFC Championship Game.
The NFL collective bargaining agreement requires appeals to be heard within 10 days, a window that expires on Wednesday. As of Monday, no hearing had been scheduled.
