There has been a furor over a new video from TMZ showing Rice viciously punching his then-fiance, who passed out from the blow.
It looks like the Ravens acquiesced to the public outcry.
He’s now been indefinitely suspended from the NFL as well:
Roger Goodell has announced that based on new video evidence that became available today he has indefinitely suspended Ray Rice.
