NFL: What is up with Big Ben?

I’m ready for the NFL season to get started. One big item in the NFL is what is going on in Pittsburgh.

AP: 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 Goodell reduces the suspension to four games, Roethlisberger will be back for Pittsburgh’s game against Cleveland on Oct. 17. Otherwise, he’ll be out until the Steelers visit New Orleans on Halloween night.

“I would just assume that I’ll sit and talk to him. We’ll have good communication and talk and find out things he has to say,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m sure he’ll want to hear what I want to say and we’ll go from there.” (read more about what is happening in the NFL in this AP story below)
