Update: The NFL has just announced that Rice has been suspended from the league. 

A league spokesperson just issued a statement saying, "Roger Goodell has announced that based on new video evidence that became available today he has indefinitely suspended Ray Rice."  The Baltimore Ravens terminated Ray Rice's contract today after a video emerged of the running back punching his then fiancee in an Atlantic City hotel elevator.  
TMZ has released the shocking elevator video that shows Ray Rice dealing a knockout punch to his wife Janay - sending her to the floor - unconscious reports the YBF! This situation got Ray a two-game suspension and had folks in an uproar! Since public outcry over the NFL's stance on domestic violence was criticized, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had had a change of mind. Last week, he announced the NFL's tougher stance on domestic violence, which will result in a six-game suspension for a first offense and an indefinite ban for a second offense committed by any NFL personnel.  The NFL, told TMZ Sports that they had NOT seen the new Ray Rice elevator footage PRIOR to giving him a 2 game suspension.  An NFL spokesperson said,  "We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator. That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today."
Sidebar: Wow he knocked her out. He should have been suspended for more than 2 games.
