Ladies and gentlemen, there appears to finally be something on the Ray Rice suspension front.
According to Yahoo! Sports reporter Rand Getlin, the Ravens running back is expected to receive a fairly light suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Rice and the Ravens would easily take two games. After all, Rice was charged with assaulting Janay Rice, his now-wife and fiancee at the time, with a video surfacing of him dragging her out of an elevator. All of the circumstances involved made it seem like a four-game suspension could come down. The Rices must have had a positive meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell earlier this month.
The league has yet to announce the suspension and it's still quiet on the Ravens side of things. But if it turns out to be two games, Rice would be ready to go against the Browns in Week 3. He would miss tough games against the Bengals and Steelers to open the season, however.
