Welp, there it is.

About eight hours after released video of Ray Rice beating the hell out of his then-fiancée in an elevator, the Ravens “have terminated” the running back’s contract.

Following the release of Rice, now a free agent, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has suspended Rice indefinitely.

Rice was eligible to rejoin the Ravens on Friday following Week Two’s home match-up with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was set to return the following week from his slap-on-the-wrist two-game suspension.

In response to the admittedly-light initial suspension, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell instituted a six-game suspension for first-time offenders of domestic violence, and a lifetime ban for a second offense.
