NFL Week 6 Live: Ben Roethlisberger returns, Brett Favre faces questions
Ben Roethlisberger returns today from a four-game suspension imposed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, rejoining a team that has done quite nicely at 3-1, thank you very much, without him. His Steelers' lucky opponent? Colt McCoy and the struggling (we're in a charitable mood) Browns.
Brett Favre faces questions...boy, does he ever. Will his elbow tendinitis allow him to start today for the Vikings? He's listed as questionable against the Cowboys in the matchup of desperate one-win teams. Then, on Tuesday, he'll answer questions posed by Milt Ahlerich, the NFL's vice-president for security, in the league's investigation into the alleged "sextual" harassment of former New York Jets employee Jenn Sterger and his behavior toward Jets massage therapists.
"Our issue here is the conduct of our employees and the question of whether this is a case of sexual harassment," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said last week.
In Philly, Michael Vick is the third quarterback, meaning that if Andy Reid brings him into the game before the fourth quarter, neither Kevin Kolb nor Mike Kafka can re-enter the game. Since the goal is to not use Vick this week, that seems a highly unlikely scenario, but with Reid, you never know.
Enough up here...let's take this to Twitter.
