    Big Ben's suspension officially reduced to 4

    As everyone expected all along, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's suspension reduced from six to four games.



    Good news

    Just got the text from KDKA; Goodell reduced the suspension to 4 games. That puts Ben back on the field for 10/17 Cleveland game at home. That's right after the bye week, which is good because it'll give Ben 2 weeks to practice with the team before he plays again.

    If Schefter and KDKA are reporting it you can pretty much take it to the bank. I still think 4 games is ridiculous, the whole suspension is ridiculous. Having said that, atleast it got reduced alittle bit. If we were to be without Ben for 6 weeks it could have been catastrophic.

    You are so right about that. Originally I thought he would be suspended 4 and possibly reduced to 2. I was absolutely shocked when I first heard the news. And everything that has occurred since then makes it even more shocking. Six with reduction to 4 is absurd because it is so out of line with what has happened to so many other players. Vince Young and Shawn Rogers = 0?? And there are others I can't remember. I just saw where some unknown Bengals (? I think) receiver was suspended one game for something he'd been arrested for.

    he'll be out a lot longer than just week 1. He's got an MCL tear. He wont see the field this season. Unless Ben gets hurt or something late in the season. He may be put in IR.
