It has been announced that Ben Roethlisberger will be suspended for four to six games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy with his most recent run in with the law.

When Roethlisberger's suspension is announced, it will have some special clauses in it that will allow his suspension to be reduced based on behavior and compliance with assigned clinical evaluators.

Many thought that the suspension could be as long as eight games, but if it goes the maximum six games he will be back October 24th to face the Miami Dolphins.
