BALTIMORE (WNEW/AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have cut running back Ray Rice in the wake of a new video show him striking his then-fiancee in February.
The NFL and the Ravens both said they never saw the video until Monday.
The grainy footage, released by TMZ Sports, apparently shows Rice and Janay Palmer in an elevator at an Atlantic City casino. Each hits the other before Rice knocks Palmer off her feet and into a railing.
An earlier TMZ video showed Rice dragging Palmer, now his wife, from the elevator at the Revel casino, which closed Sept. 2.
The NFL suspended Rice for two games in July for domestic violence.
That month, head coach John Harbaugh said, “The thing I appreciate about it is how Ray has handled it afterward by acknowledging it was wrong and he’ll do everything he can do to make it right. That’s what you ask for when someone does a wrong thing. So, I’m proud of him for that.”
Harbaugh spoke to the media again Monday night following a team practice.Comments
