Cowboys defensive tackle Tank Johnson's eight-game suspension will not be reduced, but he will be able to begin practicing on Friday with the team, Johnson's agent said.
There was some hope Johnson would have his suspension reduced by a game or two. It wasn't. Instead, Johnson will be able to practice with the team.
"We don't think the comissioner was unfair at all," said Johnson's agent, Jerrold Colton. "We're happy that he'll be able to get acclimated with the team."
Johnson will be eligible to play against the Giants in New York on Nov. 11.
