New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his attorneys will now await word from a federal appeals court on whether his four-game suspension stemming from the use of under-inflated footballs will be reinstated.

A three-judge panel heard arguments in the case Thursday in New York City. The NFL is appealing a lower court's ruling that vacated Brady's suspension.

Casey Wolnowski, an employment attorney in New York City who attended the hearing Thursday as an observer, says it appears the judges were favoring the NFL's case.
