Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been indicted for aggravated assault for an incident that took place in February at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City involving his fiancée. If charged, Rice could face three to five years of prison time. Rice was indicted by a grand jury and his indictment was increased from a simple assault to an aggravated assault. Rice's fiancée Janay Palmer has been cleared of any charges.

Rice, 27, is the Ravens' premier running back and the team has no plans of removing him from the roster. The team released a statement today regarding Rice:

This is part of the due process for Ray. We know there is more to Ray Rice than this one incident.

While the Ravens wait on whether Rice is charged or not, the NFL also waits as commissioner Roger Goodell will allow the process to play out before making any judgment on disciplining Rice

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun received some information from the prosecutor's office and took to his Twitter page:

It is unknown when the final decision on Rice will be made, but you can bet he and the Ravens will be waiting anxiously. Let's hope there is more to this story and Rice gets cleared of the charges. Let's also hope he has learned from his mistake and will not do anything like that again.
