Goodell upholds two, reduces two suspensions
The suspension of free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove was reduced from eight to seven games, while Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita is now docked one game, down from three.
Only Smith and Fujita have played this season since an appeal panel created by the NFL's labor agreement vacated the original suspensions on technical grounds and told Goodell he needed to clarify the basis of the punishment.
Vilma has been rehabilitating from offseason knee surgery.
The players also can delay the suspensions by appealing again.
