Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork and his agent Kennard McGuire are in New York today to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell regarding a possible suspension, an NFL source has confirmed.
The meeting was first reported by the website profootballtalk.com.
On Sunday, Adam Schefter of the NFL Network reported that Wilfork could face suspension for an elbow to the head of quarterback Jay Cutler during the Patriots' game against the Broncos on Oct. 20.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked about Schefter's report during his weekly interview on sports radio WEEI on Monday.
"I was informed that they're going to look into the matter," Belichick responded to host Glenn Ordway. "I went and looked at our film of the Denver game and there isn't anything on there. You can't see any contact between Vince and Jay Cutler on our game tape. That's all I have to go on. I'd say it's a league matter and whatever the league is going to do with it, they're doing with it."
Belichick acknowledged that it's possible the Broncos had a different angle, or they filmed the play longer.
