Roethlisberger Completes Clinical Evaluation, Awaits Word From The Commissioner

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has completed his league-ordered clinical evaluation, according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

Now he'll wait to hear from Commissioner Roger Goodell on when he can return to the field with his teammates. Assuming the Commissioner allows him back on the field this offseason, he can participate until his six-game suspension begins in week one. 

Roethlisberger's camp is optimistic he will be able to return to the team soon, but club officials are not sure of the timetable. The quarterback has been working out privately and is said to be in good shape and eager to mount a comeback in many ways and to meet the challenges ahead of him.

If he completes everything in the fashion Goodell wants it done, then it's possible the suspension will be reduced.
