When the NFL announced Ben Roethlisberger would be suspended 4-6 games as a result of his alleged sexual abuse, the immediate speculation was that it would be reduced to four games pending his participation in some type of league-mandated counseling, å la Mike Vick last year. Now we know at least part of what that will entail: a series of personal interviews.
According to the National Football Post, Roethlisberger will undergo psychological testing as part of a comprehensive behavioral analysis. The league's own medical personnel will perform the tests, and Goodell and Co. will reportedly have full access to their findings.
Roethlisberger's attorney has indicated that the Steeler quarterback plans on complying with all of the league's recommendations.
