As the Pittsburgh Steelers await official word from the NFL on quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter are reporting the suspension will be four to six games.

The suspension will contain conditions that will allow it to be reduced based on Roethlisberger's behavior and compliance with clinical evaluators.

Mortensen on "SportsCenter" Wednesday morning addressed the possibility the Steelers would look to trade Roethlisberger. "I would say highly, highly unlikely," Mortensen said.

A look at the Steelers' schedule:
