Goodell says NFL asked for, didn't get, Rice video

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the league asked for, but was not given, a just-released video showing former Ravens running back Ray Rice hitting his then-fiancee on an elevator.

Goodell says during an interview with CBS aired Tuesday: "We assumed that there was a video. We asked for video. But we were never granted that opportunity."

Two videos, one released by TMZ Sports and another shown later to The Associated Press by a law enforcement official, show Rice punching Janay Palmer who is now his wife at an Atlantic City casino.

Goodell says no one at the NFL saw the video until TMZ posted it online Monday. After that, the Ravens cut Rice, and the league barred him indefinitely. Last month, Goodell suspended Rice for two games.
