LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has talked briefly to Ben Roethlisberger during a visit to the Steelers' training camp, but has not yet decided whether the quarterback's suspension for bad behavior will be reduced.
Goodell won't decide whether to trim the suspension from six to four games until the end of the month. For the second day in a row, he praised Roethlisberger's steps to reshape his life, saying he has gone beyond what the NFL asked him to do.
Goodell was vague when asked several times if there was a possibility Roethlisberger's suspension could be reduced below four games. Goodell said the punishment was designed to be a minimum of four games but no final decision will be made until the preseason ends.
