The National Lacrosse League announced on Saturday that the suspension assessed to Buffalo Bandits forward Brandon Francis has been reduced from four games to three games. The decision was made by Arbitrator Ramona Gallagher, who presided over the player's appeal of the suspension. The Arbitrator ruled that the suspension be reduced by one game, on the basis that the Game Misconduct assessed to Francis during a December preseason scrimmage was not to be accrued towards the totals leading an automatic suspension.

Francis was suspended by the League for his role in incidents that occurred during the Bandits game vs. Boston on April 16th. He did not play in the Bandits' regular season finale last week, which counts as one game served of the suspension. He was suspended for Saturday's playoff game vs. Boston, and will also be suspended for the Eastern Division Final.
