Ray Rice, the ex-Baltimore Ravens running back whose contract was terminated after it was revealed he punched his wife so hard he knocked her unconscious, plans to appeal his indefinite suspension from the NFL.
If you recall, Rice was let go after TMZ released a video of the star player punching Janay Palmer (now Rice) in an Atlantic City hotel elevator. The league previously handed down a lenient two-game suspension in July, after video emerged of Rice dragging her unconscious body out of the elevator.
Rice must file the appeal by 11:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday — three business days after the NFL officially notified the players’ union of the suspension.
The NFLPA still has not finalized its plan on a basis for the appeal and is considering multiple ideas, sources told NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
