The NFL has suspended Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Justyn Ross for six games, but that is actually good news for him and the team.

Ross has missed the last five games while on the Commissioner Exempt List. He had been placed on the list following an alleged domestic incident with his girlfriend in late October.

The NFL issued a statement on Friday saying that Ross has been suspended six regular season games for violating the league’s Personal Conduct Policy. The five games Ross has already missed will be credited towards his six-game suspension, meaning he will be back with the team on Monday, after their Sunday game against the Bills.

Ross will have to pay back the salary he received while missing the last five games.

Johnson had been facing one charge for felony criminal damage and another for misdemeanor domestic battery after allegedly getting physical with his girlfriend upon learning she was cheating on him. Criminal charges in the case were dropped.

A former star receiver who dealt with health issues at Clemson, Ross has 3 catches for 34 yards in 7 games this season.
