FIFA President Sepp Blatter is being sidelined for up to three months. Reports Thursday say Blatter, along with several other top soccer officials, have been provisionally suspended.
In addition to Blatter, UEFA President and FIFA Vice-President Michel Platini, and FIFA Secretary General Jérôme Valcke are also banned for 90 days.
FIFA released a statement saying, in part, "The grounds for these decisions are the investigations that are being carried out by the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee."
