    <font class="dailybody"> In the end, he decided Tuesday to drop the appeal of his four-game suspension for a positive drug test.</font>

    <font class="dailybody"> The NFL's leader in sacks with 8"½, Merriman will not play Sunday against Cleveland, Nov. 12 at Cincinnati, Nov. 19 at Denver or Nov. 26 against Oakland. His first game back will be Dec. 3 at Buffalo.</font>
