On Sunday night, Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported that the NFL is expected to announce a suspension of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Monday or Tuesday.
It didn’t happen on Monday. Now, Adam Schefter of ESPN says it’s definitely not coming today, and that the earliest it will happen is Wednesday.
We’ve heard that teams who play the Steelers want the decision to be made and announced before the draft. Though it’s borderline ridiculous to think that teams could make draft decisions based on whether they’ll play the Steelers with Roethlisberger or someone else at quarterback, coaches crave information — and the teams who’ll be playing the Steelers early in the season want to know before the picks start what they’ll be facing when they face the Steelers.
