Roethlisberger Suspension Reduced
Per this report of ESPN, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback has had his initial 6 game suspension reduced to 4 games. He was suspended for violating the NFL's conduct policy when he was accused of sexual assault by a 20-yr-old woman from an incident at a local bar. He is also being sued by a woman in Nevada from a claim from back in 2008.
This is good news for Steeler fans as fil-in starter Byron Leftwich suffered a strained MCL in their preseason finale last night and will most likely be out for a few weeks. The Steelers have a fairly soft schedule to begin the season so they should be able to keep it together and at the worst be 2-2 with Dennis Dixon filling in until Roethlisberger returns October 17th at home against The Cleveland Browns.
Now Ben, please, STAY AWAY FROM THE BARS!!! Youa re clearly a target now. Patron and beer are not your friends. Stick to vitamin water & gatorade.
