 width=The Baltimore Ravens have terminated the contract of running back Ray Rice following the release of video footage that showed him punching his now-wife in an Atlantic City casino elevator during the offseason.

In addition, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that Rice's previous two-game suspension will now run indefinitely due to the new information that has been made available.

TMZ.com released video of the actual incident on Monday that showed Rice throwing a left-handed punch at then-fiancee Janay Palmer and knocking her out cold at the Revel Casino back in February.

Surveillance video originally released by the celebrity gossip website only revealed the aftermath of the incident, with Rice dragging Palmer out of the elevator.

The new video shows Rice and Palmer entering the elevator at the now-closed casino. The two are standing next to each other before a minor shove. Rice then moves away and Palmer rushes toward him before he reacts with a quick left-handed blow.
