Sash, a former Iowa star who was suspended by the league for the first four games of the regular season for using a banned substance, met Monday with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss the case.

The league has already denied his appeal. He was seeking an explanation from the league about why it would suspend him for using a prescription a doctor gave him to combat anxiety while speaking.

“I’m just going in there open-minded and anything that comes of it is meant to be,” he told the Associated Press beforehand. “I’m the type of person, I’m going to continue on. … If I get four games, it’s a lesson learned.”

Sash left Sunday’s practice when bone spurs in his left ankle locked up his foot, but expects to play Wednesday in the preseason finale.
