Pittsburgh - Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been suspended for six games without pay for
violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
Commissioner Roger Goodell made the announcement Wednesday.
Roethlisberger also must undergo a "comprehensive behavioral evaluation by medical professionals."
The suspension could be reduced to four games for good behavior after the behavioral evaluation is completed.
Last week, prosecutors decided not to charge Roethlisberger after a 20-year-old college student accused him of sexually assaulting her in a Georgia nightclub in March.
