NEW YORK (AP) - A person with knowledge of the decision says Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be suspended for four to six games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on the condition of anonymity because the league hasn't announced its decision.
ESPN first reported the suspension.
Both ESPN and FoxSports.com are reporting that the suspension would contain conditions that would allow the length of the ban to be reduced.
Last month a 20-year-old college student accused Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting her in a Georgia nightclub. Last week, prosecutors decided not to charge Roethlisberger in the case.
