It looks like Florio’s abacus needs to go in for repairs.
Ben Roethlisberger’s suspension is expected come on Wednesday, according to a tweet from Mark Maske of the Washington Post. A previous report from Yahoo! said the suspension would come by Tuesday, but it looks like that will be at least a day off.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter also quotes a source that would be “very surprised” if Roethlisberger’s suspension comes out Tuesday. Schefter said no one is exactly certain when the announcement will arrive, but the league wants to resolve the issue quickly.
Maske also writes that Roethlisberger will accept the suspension if it’s not “too harsh.”
We’re wondering what would define “too harsh” here. Our best guess: anything more than a four game suspension could create an appeal.
