Roethlisberger to Receive 6 Game Suspension

ESPN reported Wednesday morning that the NFL will suspend Steelers' QB Ben Roethlisberger for six games in the upcoming season.  Roethlisberger's suspension is the result of his alleged sexual assault of a 20-year old female in a Georgia bar in March which, though he wasn't charged on account of insufficient evidence, was a violation of the NFL's conduct policy.

UPDATE:  As part of his suspension, Roethlisberger must also undergo a complete behavioral evaluation and his suspension could be reduced to four games provided he doesn't sexually assault anyone else based on good behavior.
