Ray Rice expected to be disciplined by the NFL at some point

ray ricePeter King of TheMMQB.com believes Ravens running back Ray Rice will be disciplined by the NFL and possibly his own team after allegedly knocking out his fiancee at an Atlantic City casino over a week ago.

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said something telling about the alleged altercation between running back Ray Rice and his fiancée, Janay Palmer, at an Atlantic City casino last weekend. “Right now, I feel very good about his side of the story.” If so, then Rice must have given team officials a version that involves either self-defense or overt provocation by Palmer. Not that either one of those explanations would justify domestic abuse, if there was abuse. And regardless of the circumstances, if Rice did lay a hand on Palmer, he’ll be branded an abuser and likely face league or team discipline because of it.
