Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome Ozzie Newsome expressed concern over Ray Rice's arrest, a video of which shows him allegedly striking his fiancee Janay Palmer in an Atlantic City casino has gone viral in the past few days.

Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is concerned about running back Ray Rice's recent arrest

In a news conference at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis on Feb. 22, , Garrett Downing of the Ravens' official website writes the Ravens GM feels there may be some more facts that will eventually surface sooner or later: 

"General manager Ozzie Newsome addressed the media Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine, and he took a number of questions about the status of Ray Rice following his arrest on domestic violence charges last weekend.

"Newsome has not spoken with Rice yet about the incident, but the running back has been in communication with members of the organization. Rice has had several conversations with head coach John Harbaugh, director of player development Harry Swayne and director of security Darren Sanders, who have relayed that information back to Newsome.

"Based on those conversations, Newsome suggested there is more to the story than what has currently been reported.

"Rice and his fiancee, Janay Palmer, were both arrested and charged with simple assault domestic violence following the incident in the Atlantic City casino. A court summons alleges that Rice struck Palmer with his hand and rendered her unconscious." 

Newsome referred to a video of Rice allegedly striking his fiancee Janay Palmer. He said "it doesn't look good" and refused to comment any further until all the facts are straightened out, per Downing.

"I did (watch the video) online just like everybody else did, and it doesn't look too good. But I'm going to reserve all my comments up until I have a chance to talk to Ray. From what I've gotten from John and from Harry and Darren, the whole video needs to be reviewed.

"I don't know if anybody here has had the opportunity to talk to Ray, and I don't know if a different story is going to come out. The video is what it is. But like I said, up until the process runs its course, we as an organization, we will stand down."

On the other hand, Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun notes a Tuesday court hearing was postponed with no new court date set at the moment. The reason behind the postponement is that the case is still being reviewed by the county prosecutor upon the request of Atlantic City police. 

Harbaugh told Wilson he fully expects Rice to suit up for the team's conditioning program which begins in April. He also foresees his running back to be back on the active roster. 

However, Wilson also stresses the NFL will review the case under its personal conduct policy. If deemed guilty, Rice may be suspended by the league for the first time in his pro football career

Newsome also discussed this particular matter in the combine, according to ESPN's Jeff Legwold. 

"As a league we have a conduct policy and being a member of the league, we will follow that from A to Z. Up until we get to that point, I mean, right now he falls under the personal conduct policy with the league and we will allow the league to take its position before we would have to take any."

In a letter to Rice, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell outlined his reasoning for the punishment:  "[Y]our conduct was unquestionably inconsistent with league polices ...
