Ray Rice Set To Testify In Court After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Gets Questioned By His Lawyers

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersViolenceFootballNFL

Ray Rice will testify in court today in hopes of having his indefinite suspension appealed.

Just days after Adrian Peterson avoided jail time in his child abuse case, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has to immediately switch his attention over to another ugly scandal.

The commish made his way to a New York courtroom yesterday where he testified and was cross examined in Ray Rice's hearing to appeal his indefinite suspension from the league.

The hearing stems from the footballer's suspension that took place nearly two months ago after footage showed him punching his now wife Janay Rice in an elevator, knocking her unconscious.
