The expanded suspension comes in a week there the NFL has undergone criticism for its handling of recent incidents involving players such as former Baltimore Ravens' running back Ray, and Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson.
UPDATE: CNN's Rachel Nichols is reporting via Twitter that Winston's suspension is due to Winston being "not entirely truthful" to the school. What Winston was "untruthful" about is unclear.
Am being told increased penalty for FSU's Jameis Winston came after school discovered he'd not been entirely truthful with them.
