After the shocking video was released this morning by TMZ, the Baltimore Ravens have released Ray Rice and he has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL.
The news release from the NFL team was terse.
“The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contract of RB Ray Rice this afternoon,” it read.
Shortly after the team’s announcement, the league said the three-time all-Pro was suspended indefinitely.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who had originally given Rice a two-game ban, increased the suspension after viewing the new video for the first time, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said on Twitter.
The NFL players’ union didn’t immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
