Newsome: Ray Rice still in Ravens' plans

By Jamison Hensley

The Baltimore Ravens are still projecting Ray Rice as their starting running back, three days after Rice was arrested and charged in an altercation with his fiancee in Atlantic City.

Neither general manager Ozzie Newsome nor coach John Harbaugh have talked to Rice but one will likely do so over the next day.

"When I left my office 20 minutes and John been in there 15 minutes before then, Ray Rice was still a big part of what we plan to do in 2014," Newsome said Monday.

The Ravens released a statement Sunday, saying Rice and his fiancee returned home together after being detained.

"I don't know the situation. I've only gotten what has been written," Newsome said. "I've not had a chance to talk to Ray. I really don't the situation. Up until I get all the answers, then that's when we make decisions within this organization."
