Watson's people expecting a full season suspension

Indefinite would be an interesting twist.

I still personally believe it will be only a season. 

That would never hold up in Court. They cannot leave a punishment "open ended" and if they did, lawsuits would be filed by both Watson and the NFLPA. There are structures for suspensions and I doubt any of them say "12 games, but we will play the rest by ear". Leaving is open ended incentivizes new allegations that may not necessarily be true, either. I know false accusations occur rarely but if there was a case that would get them, it would be this.

Maybe the rules are different now but it has certainly happened in the past...
