NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Could Meet With Ben Roethlisberger Thursday

Roger Goodell is likely to meet with Ben Roethlisberger tomorrow, the Post-Gazette reports:

Roethlisberger will begin serving a suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy when the preseason is over. Goodell has said he will consider reducing the suspension to four games if Roethlisberger meets all the requirements of his punishment and exhibits good behavior.

“I assume I will, but it’s not scheduled that I know of,” Roethlisberger said today of a meeting with Goodell. “It could be a last-minute thing. I’m not really sure.”

It’s possible that Goodell could decide to reduce Roethlisberger’s suspension from six games to four. Goodell’s comments suggest that he’s at least moderately likely to do that – he praises Roethlisberger’s understanding of the “seriousness” of the trouble he finds himself in.
