Yahoo’s Rand Getlin reports that the NFL will only enforce a two-game suspension for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, after he reportedly struck his then-fiancee Janay Palmer with an uppercut and then dragged her out of the casino elevator.

ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter has said definitively that Rice would miss the two opening games against Cincinnati and Pittsburgh.

Rice, who married Palmer after the incident, apologized at a press conference in May.

As a reminder, other NFL players have faced harsher penalties for lesser offenses.

Terrelle Pryor got slapped with a five-game suspension in 2011 because he got free tattoos in college.

Josh Gordon got a 16-game suspension for smoking weed.
