Hines Ward says quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's six-game suspension is disappointing but justified, and threatens to leave the Pittsburgh Steelers in a precarious position when the season begins. Ward, a Steelers offensive co-captain along with Roethlisberger, doesn't think the quarterback will have any trouble regaining his teammates' confidence and respect once he returns in October. Roethlisberger was suspended last week for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
