Earlier today, former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice made his first official statement after footage of him violently punching his then-fiancé surfaced and he was subsequently suspended from the NFL.
He told ESPN’s Josina Anderson:
“I have to be strong with my wife. She is so strong. We are in good spirits. We have a lot of people praying for us and we’ll continue to support each other. I have to be there for (Janay) and my family right now and work through this.”
Janay released a statement of her own this morning. Click here if you missed it.
