The Ravens are bracing themselves for Ray Rice to be suspended, though they’re awaiting word on how long.
As it turns out, it might be shorter than anyone expected.
According to Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports, Rice is expected to get a two-game suspension, though no official announcement has been made.
If that’s the case, Rice will get half the punishment for being caught on tape knocking out his now-wife (who apologized for getting knocked out) that other players get for testing positive for Adderall.
If that’s the case, Rice will miss games against the Bengals and Steelers.
But perhaps more poignantly, he’ll be back on the field by October, when the NFL wraps itself in pink to remind us how valuable their female customers are to them.
