Default Ben to meet with Goodell on Friday

Steelers QB Roethlisberger to meet with Goodell on Friday

Quote:
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after the team's final preseason game to see if his suspension will be reduced from six games to four.

NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reports that the meeting will take place Friday, and it is widely assumed within the Pittsburgh organization and around the league that the suspension will be four games and not six.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed a report by Fox Sports on Sunday night that the two will meet soon but he declined to say when or where the meeting would take place.

"The commissioner has stated that he would make his decision prior to the start of the regular season and that he would meet with Ben again as part of the process," Aiello told The Associated Press.

Roethlisberger was suspended for six games after being accused of sexually assaulting a Georgia college student in March. He was not criminally charged in the case.

If Roethlisberger's suspension is reduced to four games, he'll be back for their game against Cleveland on Oct. 17.

Otherwise, he wouldn't be back until the Steelers play at New Orleans on Halloween night.

Either way, the Steelers will know before their opener against Atlanta on Sept. 12 how long they'll be without their two-time Super Bowl winning QB.NFL Audio Pass


Roethlisberger didn't play very long in the Steelers' game at Denver on Sunday night, giving way to Dennis Dixon after taking 11 snaps in the first quarter.

Roethlisberger was 4 for 6 for 67 yards, including a 47-yarder to Mike Wallace.

After he was pulled, Dixon got his first significant playing time with the starters. Dixon has started only one NFL game, and he is expected to be Byron Leftwich's backup when the season starts and Roethlisberger's suspension begins.

Goodell has NO reason to give Ben 6 weeks. I think it stays at 4. Unless something comes out in the psych evaluation.

I see Ben out for four weeks unless Goodell wants to up the ante to 6 just to enforce his "This is what I will do to you criminally charged or not" statement.

I believe it will be 4, even though it should be only 2 at the most.
