Rice was originally handed a two-game suspension in July under the NFL's personal conduct policy after he was charged with assault for the Feb. 15 attack.

Can Ray Rice ultimately be forgiven?

Try writing a post seeking comment on whether embattled NFL star Ray Rice could ultimately be forgiven and watch your social network streams light up with a fair amount of outrage questioning how you could even suggest such a thing. It is definitely not politically correct to ask if a man seen on a hotel surveillance video knocking out his then-fiancee and dragging her from an elevator could one day face redemption.

Redskins reinstate Meriweather

The Washington Redskins placed Brandon Meriweather back on the 53-man roster Tuesday after the veteran safety completed serving his two-game suspension for an illegal hit.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection drew a personal foul penalty for forcible contact to a defenseless player on the play.

Diversion program that accepted Rice rare for those charged with domestic violence assaults

The offender-rehabilitation program former Baltimore Raven Ray Rice was allowed into after knocking his fiancee unconscious in an Atlantic City elevator is rarely used in domestic assault cases - but whether that means he got special treatment because of his stardom remains up in the air, depending on whom you ask. Only 70 of the more than 15,000 domestic violence assault cases adjudicated from 2010 to 2013 in New Jersey's Superior Court were admitted into the pretrial intervention program, according to records obtained by The Associated Press.

NFL needs Condoleeza Rice in top job

You want to know why Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punched out his girlfriend with all the swagger of a prize fighter? First answer that pops to mind? He's a creep and he'd be a creep no matter what his profession. But I think we have to admit his behavior is also partially because he's an uncouth jockstrap who plays pro football.
