Ray Rice and wife to address media at news conference Friday

May 22, 5:55 PM

While Ray Rice was given an out from standing trial and facing jail time, the Ravens running back will inevitably still be dogged by scrutiny for the incident in February in which he allegedly knocked then-fiancee Janay Palmer unconscious. 

Rice and Palmer, now married, are hoping to put the whole thing behind them, and on Friday will address the media together at a news conference, per a team release. It will be Rice's first time speaking to the media since the incident.

The press conference is set for 3 p.m. ET at the Under Armour Performance Center, the Ravens practice facility, and will stream live on the team's official website.
