NEW YORK (AP) â€” Ben Roethlisberger is one of 14 players who begin the NFL season on suspension.
According to league figures, Roethlisberger is one of four players suspended for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. The others are Ravens cornerback Cary Williams, Patriots tackle Quinn Ojinnaka and Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib.
Seven players are banned for substance abuse, and three are out due to violating the policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Atlanta is the only team with two players suspended, linebacker Robert James for PEDs and defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux for substance abuse.
