Commissioner to meet with Roethlisberger
By James Walker
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. This meeting likely will confirm Roethlisberger's reduced suspension from six games to four.
Roethlisberger received a conditional six-game suspension this offseason for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. Since then, Roethlisberger has done all the right things in an effort to get his suspension reduced.
The league needs to make a decision on "Big Ben" soon with the regular season starting in two weeks. If the suspension is cut to four games, Roethlisberger will return on Oct. 17 against the Cleveland Browns.
