NFL Suspends Ravens RB Ray Rice for Two Games
Updated: Thursday, July 31 2014, 02:29 PM EDT
The NFL has suspended Ravens running back Ray Rice for the first two games of the season and fined him $58,000, the Baltimore team confirmed Thursday afternoon.
Rice will miss opening games against Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. He is suspended without pay for those two games and was fined an additional game.
Of the suspension, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said, "While not having Ray for the first two games is significant to our team, we respect the league's decision and believe it is fair."
In February Rice and his then-fiance Janay Palmer were arrested for fighting in Atlantic City. Video obtained by TMZ sports showed the Ravens star dragging Janay, motionless, out of an elevator at the Revel Casino.
Rice and Palmer were married one day after Rice was indicted by a grand jury on third-degree aggravated assault. In May Rice entered a not-guilty plea. He was accepted into the Pre-Trial intervention program; if he successfully completes the program it would result in the charge against him being dropped and his record expunged.
After the suspension was announced Thursday Rice said, "It is disappointing that I will not be with my teammates for the first two games of the season, but that's my fault...As I said earlier, I failed in many ways. But Janay and I have learned from this. We have become better as a couple and as parents."
In a May press conference, his first since his arrest, Rice apologized to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, General Manager Ozzie Newsome, Coach John Harbaugh and his fans. He also apologized to "the kids and everyone who was affected by this situation."
"Sometimes in life you will fail," Rice said. "But I won't call myself a failure. Failure is not getting knocked down, it's not getting up."
