Despite reports that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will suspend Michael Vick for four games as part of a conditional reinstatement, the league is adamant that the review of the quarterback’s status is ongoing, that no determinations have been made and that there is no timetable for a decision.

Several people in the NFL office believe a ruling on Vick could come this month, but the official word hasn’t wavered: No decision has been made, and no comments will be forthcoming until there is a ruling. As for an official statement, here is what Greg Aiello, NFL spokesman, e-mailed me when I inquired about Vick’s status: “This is a serious matter. We are engaging in a careful and thoughtful process, and no decisions have been made.”

So there you have it.
