Ray Rice is a true role model ("NFL misses its chance to send a message," July 25). An athlete, actor or other public figure is not a role model simply because they are a public figure. They become role models only when they do something worthy of attention and emulation. Sure, Mr. Rice messed up. But he also demonstrated in full public view the absolute correct way to behave when you do mess up. And how many of us haven't messed up one way or the other? Mr. Rice has taken full responsibility for his actions, with no excuses, justifications or blaming of others.

  Ravens running back Ray Rice has been accepted into a diversionary program that could allow him to clear his record of charges that he knocked his then-fiancee unconscious in a New Jersey casino, but he could still face discipline from the NFL.   Rice, 27, earlier this month pleaded not guilty to one count of third-degree aggravated assault and instead sought entry into a pre-trial intervention program for first-time offenders....

Ravens running back Ray Rice has been charged with aggravated assault in the February incident in which he is accused of knocking his fiancee unconscious in an Atlantic City casino elevator, a more serious charge than he originally faced. Rice, 27, initially faced a charge of simple assault for striking Janay Palmer in the Revel Casino, an incident that authorities say was caught on tape. Prosecutors in Atlantic County, N.J., reviewed the case for several weeks before presenting it to a grand jury, which handed up the indictment, officials said.

The attorney for Ray Rice suggested that the Ravens running back retaliated after being struck first by his then-fiancee during a domestic-violence incident in February. Philadelphia lawyer Michael Diamondstein, who helped Rice obtain approval for a diversionary program that will allow him to avoid jail time and offer the chance to have his record cleared in a year, appeared to give a detailed "hypothetical" account of what transpired at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., during a radio interview with Matthew Hammond of 97.3 ESPN-FM in New Jersey.

Within moments of the NFL's two-game suspension of Ray Rice, various sport organizations and victims rights groups stated their displeasure with Roger Goodall's decision ("Rice suspended 2 games," July 25). However, Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome and Coach John Harbaugh continue to vehemently defend Mr. Rice's behavior and stated the "circumstances would determine the consequences" - as if to infer Janey Rice somehow contributed to being knocked out cold and therefore a two-game suspension was fair.

Ravens fans showed support for running back Ray Rice when he took the field for Monday night's open workout at M&T Bank Stadium, but they seemed to recognize that an outsized ovation would not be appropriate in the wake of the domestic assault incident that led to a two-game NFL suspension. Rice got applause from segments of the crowd as he moved past several sections of the stands after entering the playing field, then got a bigger, general ovation when he was shown for the first time on the video board.

As expected, Ray Rice did not appeal his two-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy , meaning that the running back will be sidelined for the Ravens' Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals and their Sept. 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rice also was fined three total game checks, which equates to $529,000, by NFL commissioner   Roger Goodell. The Ravens' running back, who was accused of striking his now-wife, Janay, unconscious during an altercation in the elevator of an Atlantic City, N.J. casino in February, learned of the suspension Thursday, before the team's first full-squad workout of training camp.

When Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco handed the football off and threw swing passes to Ray Rice this spring, he had a close-up view of the three-time Pro Bowl running back's physical transformation. Rice had regained much of his old quickness, displaying an ability to run away from defenders that all but disappeared during the worst season of his NFL career last year. Rice has lost roughly 20 pounds since last season, when he weighed as much as 225 pounds while struggling with hip and quadriceps injuries that robbed him of his ability to elude pursuit or break tackles.

As the Ravens await NFL commissioner  Roger Goodell's  ruling on  Ray Rice's   discipline, it's becoming more apparent that they won't be alone in going with the running back by committee approach during Rice's absence. There is wide-ranging opinion on how long Rice will be suspended for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy with his actions during a physical confrontation with his then fiancee and now wife in February. But it's certainly not impossible - and some view it as probable - that Rice is suspended for at least the first three games.

While Ray Rice continued to bask in the glow of his 29-yard, catch-and-run on fourth-and-29 against the San Diego Chargers, quarterback Joe Flacco admitted that he didn't do any reflecting on the play and he didn't plan to. “We got away with one and I'll be glad. I could have looked like a big-time idiot if we don't get that play,” Flacco said. “I kind of went out on a limb there to check the ball down on fourth-and-29. We don't get that, everybody is crushing me: 'What the hell is he doing checking the ball down on fourth-and-29?

The defensive line was supposed to be a major strength for the Ravens last year after they signed veterans  Chris Canty  and  Marcus Spears  and then used a third-round pick on  Brandon Williams . It didn't work out that way. The group didn't perform poorly by any means, but the defense finished 11th   against the run and didn't generate a lot of pass rush from the interior defensive line beyond the work of  Arthur Jones...
