NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, speaking at the owners' meetings in Orlando, Fla., on Monday, said he will meet with Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger at the "appropriate time" regarding sexual-assault allegations levied against Pittsburgh's starting quarterback, according to multiple media outlets.

"We are concerned that Ben continues to put himself in this position," Goodell said, according to The (Baltimore) Sun. "I have spoken to the Steelers and (team president) Art Rooney (II) directly about it."

Roethlisberger is being investigated in connection with an alleged sexual assault at a nightclub in Milledgeville, Ga. Also, Roethlisberger is facing a civil lawsuit in Nevada after a Nevada woman alleged Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her in July 2008. Criminal charges were not brought against Roethlisberger, who denied the allegations.
