Commissioner Goodell Will Make Roethlisberger Decision Within A Week

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has completed a behavioral evaluation -- as ordered by Commissioner Roger Goodell -- but has yet to return to the field.

The Commissioner hasn't given him clearance to return to Steelers OTAs.

Speaking at NFL owners meetings in Dallas, TX on Tuesday, Goodell said he expects to have a decision on Roethlisberger's return within a week.

Roethlisberger is currently suspended for six games, a number that can be lowered at Goodell's discretion. The Commissioner has demonstrated in the past that he's willing to lower the penalty if things go well.
