Ray Rice 'looks good' in first week of organized workouts

The Baltimore Sun

Ravens running back Ray Rice was among the players who participated in voluntary organized team activities at the team facility on Thursday.

Rice returned to the field days after he held a news conference to apologize for his arrest following a physical altercation with this then-fiance, now wife at an Atlantic City casino in February. 

Rice is likely facing a suspension from the NFL and his case is in the process of being resolved as he was accepted into a pretrial diversion program that allows him to avoid jail time and potentially clear his record in a year.

On Thursday, Rice joined his teammates as he caught swing passes out of the backfield and made cuts in the rain.

"He looks good," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said of Rice. "It's not really total football right now, so you can't say that much. He's in shape. He's worked hard that way, and he's excited to get out there.

"The football field is a place, it's a safe haven for him right now. And he likes being out there. But he needs to do a good job, just like they all do."
