Seattle's Hunter suspended for domestic dispute case

KIRKLAND, Wash. -- The NFL suspended without pay Seattle Seahawks reserve offensive tackle Wayne Hunter for Sunday's game at
Tennessee for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

A league statement issued Wednesday said Hunter was fined one
additional game check. The punishment is related to a domestic
dispute with his girlfriend in the summer of 2003.

Hunter's total loss is $44,705.88 -- 2/17ths of his $380,000 base
salary for this season.

The league had already suspended Hunter for the 2004 season
opener because of the incident. The latest suspension and fines
stem from subsequent procedures taken to settle the case.

Hunter, 24, has played in only one game in his three NFL
seasons. He was Seattle's third-round draft choice in 2003.
