Ray Rice To Be Suspended 2 Games For Knocking Out Fiancee Turned Wife
UPDATE (9-8-14): Footage of the knock out punch inside the elevator has been released.
Back in February, Ray Rice and his then fiancee, Janay Palmer, were spotted getting into an altercation on video and it looked he knocked her unconscious in an Atlantic City hotel elevator. The NFL will be suspending the star running back for what will reportedly be only two games.Reports NBC Sports:
The Ravens are bracing themselves for Ray Rice to be suspended, though they’re awaiting word on how long.
As it turns out, it might be shorter than anyone expected.
According to Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports, Rice is expected to get a two-game suspension, though no official announcement has been made.
If that’s the case, Rice will get half the punishment for being caught on tape knocking out his now-wife (who apologized for getting knocked out) that other players get for testing positive for Adderall.
If the suspension is indeed just two games, this won’t go well.
