Ben Roethlisberger has been cleared by the NFL to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers beginning next week, although no decision has been made on the length of his suspension. The quarterback was suspended without pay for six games last month by Commissioner Roger Goodell after a 20-year-old college student accused him of sexual assault in Milledgeville, Ga. No charges were filed. Roethlisberger underwent a behavioral evaluation as part of the suspension, which could be reduced to four games by Goodell, who will review the case again before the regular season.

Pro Bowl tight end Jeremy Shockey is probably out for the season after injuring a knee in the New York Giants' 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Shockey will not need surgery, but recovery time is six to eight weeks, Coach Jim Fassel said Monday. An MRI exam showed a partial tear of Shockey's posterior cruciate ligament. "Jeremy has been a big part of our offense," Fassel said. "You can't just unplug a guy like that and say that it is not going to effect you or hurt you."
