BALTIMORE, MD - Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is back in the game.
He's been reinstated to the NFL after former U.S. District Judge Barbara Jones overturned Rice's indefinite suspension, which he received after elevator video of him punching his wife went viral.
Judge Jones called Rice's second penalty "arbitrary," saying there were no new facts on which NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell could base Rice's increased suspension.
His wife, Janay, has remained loyal to her husband and she's speaking up for the first time. In an interview with ESPN, Janay said her husband has apologized, gone to counseling and become a better person.
Perhaps the NFL is taking Janay at her word, because the league is changing its personal conduct policy, yet again.
After Rice won his appeal, the NFL says it expects to announce its newly-revised policy in the coming weeks.
