As the league's owners gather here in Florida, one of their peers isn't among them.

Jim Irsay of the Indianapolis Colts entered a health-care facility last week after his arrest this month on suspicion of intoxicated driving.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday called Irsay's decision to voluntarily seek help "the most important step, at least initially," but emphasized that Indy's owner remains subject to a potential league-imposed punishment.

"We obviously will want to understand the facts before we take any steps as it relates to any potential discipline," Goodell told reporters during the NFL Annual Meeting. "Obviously, any policies or any laws that are broken, whether you're commissioner or owner or player or coach, those are subject to discipline."
