The Ravens participated in a mandatory league-wide NFL educational program Monday dealing with domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse issues.

The league instituted the program for NFL players, coaches and all staff members in the wake of indefinitely suspended former Ravens running back Ray Rice's high-profile domestic violence incident in which he was charged with felony aggravated assault for knocking out his then-fiancee in February at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.

The league also has been dealing with the fallout of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's child abuse incident involving his 4-year-old son.

Ravens tight end Owen Daniels said the program was well-received.

"I think so," he said. "Obviously, that's a hot topic just across the country in general right now. It doesn't matter what line of profession you're in, so it was good to get some expertise and perspective on that and just some enlightenment."
