We finally have word on the punishment for Ben Roethlisberger, and it’s severe: ESPN reports the Steelers QB will be suspended four-to-six games, with conditions attached.
We’re awaiting further details of the conditions, but this likely means he’ll only miss four games if he displays good behavior and attends some sort of league-mandated courses or counseling.
At the least, it looks like Roethlisberger will miss games against the Falcons, Bucs, Titans and Ravens. Pittsburgh will have to go into those games with Charlie Batch and the newly-reacquired Byron Leftwich.
For all things Steelers, head to SB Nation's Behind The Steel Curtain.
