Here's the expectation for ESPN radio host Ryen Russillo.

ESPN has yet to publicly comment on the arrest of prominent host Ryen Russillo, who was charged with criminal trespassing in Wyoming early Wednesday morning. The 42-year-old host was reportedly found naked in a stranger's condo and didn't seem to know where he was. Russillo was reportedly released from jail Thursday.

What kind of punishment could be coming for the national radio host?

Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch says the "expectation" is that he will be suspended.

In talking with staffers inside and outside of ESPN on Wednesday, the expectation is Russillo will be suspended by the company for a period of time. No decision had been made given management had yet to talk to Russillo as of last night.

Russillo's colleagues also reportedly expect him to address what happened on the air if he gets the chance to do so.

His show airs daily from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. E.T.
