The NFL's personal conduct policy has been Roger Goodell personal crusade as league commissioner. Here's the breakdown of players suspended on Goodell's watch.

Police spokesman Brian Dixon said he didn't know why prosecutors decided not to file charges against the 23-year-old Gill, who has been released from jail.

The Marion County prosecutor's office didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

Team president Bill Polian said Monday that he expects the NFL to place Gill in a roster category that would keep him inactive this season.

A police report said Gill tried to stand up but kept falling over. Gill, who is in his second year with the team, played in two games as a rookie out of Northwestern.
