Source: Ravens knew extent of Rice incident hours after punch

A source within the Baltimore Ravens organization tells CNN that a Ravens official knew that former running back Ray Rice knocked out his now-wife and knew there was video evidence of it just hours after the incident occurred.

This latest information comes as embattled NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell broke his silence Friday to address the domestic abuse cases that have consumed his league over the past 10 days.

Speaking at a Manhattan news conference amid calls for his resignation, Goodell announced a sweeping policy to counter domestic abuse and sexual assault, mandating all players and staff on the league's 32 teams undergo education and training about how to prevent abuse.

All the uproar, started with the elevator surveillance video of Rice abusing his now-wife. A crime that initially cost rice just two games. Goodell apologized for failing his fans.

"I got it wrong in the handling of the Ray Rice matter and I'm sorry for that," Goodell said. "I'm not satisfied with the way we handled it from the get-go. I made a mistake. I'm not satisfied with the process we went through. I'm not satisfied with the conclusion."

Roger Goodell silent during NFL crisis

Where is Roger Goodell?

That is what many are wondering as criticism grows over the NFL's handling of domestic assault cases. It's been nine days since the NFL commissioner spoke to CBS News about the Ray Rice incident. Since he last spoke publicly, endorsement deals have been pulled and at least five players have been benched.

Goodell has remained silent even as we learn of new and disturbing allegations of abuse at the hands of NFL players.

CNN's Miguel Marquez has more.

NFL Players Union appeals Ray Rice's indefinite suspension

The National Players Association says it has filed an appeal of Ray Rice's indefinite suspension by the NFL.

NFLPA Statement below:

Today, the NFL Players Association formally filed an appeal of the indefinite suspension of Ray Rice by the NFL. This action taken by our union is to protect the due process rights of all NFL players.
The NFLPA appeal is based on supporting facts that reveal a lack of a fair and impartial process, including the role of the office of the Commissioner of the NFL. We have asked that a neutral and jointly selected arbitrator hear this case as the Commissioner and his staff will be essential witnesses in the proceeding and thus cannot serve as impartial arbitrators.
- NFL Players Association

The president of the association told CNN's Erin Burnett that the organization has an obligation to defend its members. He was clear that Rice has been disciplined multiple times by the NFL commissioner and should be able to play again.
