Baltimore Ravens

FILE - In this May 23, 2014, file photo, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, right, speaks alongside his wife, Janay, during a news conference, Friday, May 23, in Owings Mills, Md. Rice’s two-game suspension for domestic violence begins Saturday, a punishment handed down after grainy video showed him dragging his then-fiancee off a casino elevator unconscious Feb. 15. He has not divulged what happened in the elevator except to call his actions "totally inexcusable'' at a news conference after his suspension was announced. His assault charges could be expunged once he completes a diversion program. So the NFL gave him the only punishment he likely faces in a suspension and a fine that totals more than $500,000.

Steve Silverman, the lead plaintiffs' attorney, said this week, dozens of former players are joining a lawsuit against the NFL saying teams kept handing out powerful painkillers and other drugs with few, if any, safeguards as recently as 2012 to keep players on the field. That extends by four years the time frame for similar claims made by hundreds of former players in the original complaint and could open the door to a criminal investigation.
