Ravens and NFL deal Rice a knock-out blow over video

Text size Aa Aa

Baltimore Ravens star running back Ray Rice has been released by his team and indefinitely suspended by the National Football League following the release of a video that appears to show him assaulting his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City casino.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said: “Seeing the video this morning. We had a chance to get together with Steve (Ravens Owner Steve Bisciotti), Dick (Ravens president Dick Cass), Ozzie (Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome), myself and we had a meeting. It was not a long meeting. We came to the decision that we came to, to release Ray (Rice).”

Rice was suspended for two games in July for domestic violence when a first video from the February incident was released of him dragging his now wife Janay Palmer out of an elevator.

But after a second tape showing a full account of the incident, including him knocking her out with a single punch, Rice was cut loose from his team and the NFL.
