I don't think it has been tested legally in the courts, but the NFL precedent is that you cannot play while on the Commissioner Exempt list. (Technically, you may be able to appeal to the NFL about being on the Exempt list itself, but you cannot play during your appeal).
It would be interesting to see what courts have to say, as the NFL is playing loose with the CBA and precedent, but it would be a very big deal to appeal the exempt list itself and even bigger deal for the Players Association to win.
