Roethlisberger Suspension Is Official: 4-6 Games With Conditions

The NFL made it official suspending Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger for four to six games, depending on certain conditions.

According to a NFL spokesman, Roethlisberger must undergo "comprehensive behavioral evaluation" as part of the process.

Roethlisberger and the Commissioner will then meet prior to the season and determine if Roethlisberger has done enough to merit a four-game suspension instead of six. In the instance things are not going as planned by that point, the Commissioner reserves the right to extend the suspension past six games.

As we've previously explained, this suspension is coming from the NFL and not the team. This means that any appeals by Roethlisberger will be heard by Goodell. That said, Roethlisberger is not expected to fight the suspension.
