Buffalo's starting running back is meeting with the NFL commissioner today to discuss his latest scrape with the law...

The long-awaited fate of Marshawn Lynch should be decided soon.

Buffalo's starting running back was scheduled to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell today to discuss his second run-in with the law in the past nine months.

Lynch pleaded guilty to a gun-related misdemeanor charge on March 5. His punishment was 80 hours of community service and three years of probation. He is expected to be suspended by Goodell, possibly for two or four games.

Last year, Lynch was not punished by Goodell after being tied into a messy hit-and-run incident. The NFL's commissioner isn't as light on second offenders, though. Since instituting a new personal conduct policy in 2007, Goodell has disciplined several players after double infractions.

The official decision probably will not be revealed for a couple days. Players have an opportunity to appeal a suspension after it is levied.
