Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was released by his team and suspended indefinitely by the NFL for punching his wife in a casino elevator and dragging her out of it when she was unconscious.
A video of this incident was released by TMZ, and it has since been reported that commissioner Roger Goodell saw the video in April and covered it up.
However, the running back is not giving up on appealing his suspension. His next step will be to argue that the video was edited, according to a report from Sports Illustrated.
Former FBI director Robert Mueller will gain access to the full elevator security video, so Rice will receive an opportunity to argue his case if there is more to the video as he is saying.
However, it will be difficult for Rice to gain anyone’s trust after it was shown that he punched his wife.
