BALTIMORE – Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for two games without pay for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy.

Commissioner Roger Goodell also docked Rice an additional game check, his total loss of wages adding up to slightly more than $700,000.

Rice, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, reportedly is not planning to appeal.

Goodell met with Rice and his wife, Janay, on June 16 and questioned them about their Feb. 15 physical altercation in an elevator at an Atlantic City, N.J., casino.

Rice, 27, was accused of striking his then-fiancée unconscious and was charged with felony aggravated assault. He was accepted into a pretrial intervention program that allowed him to avoid jail and could lead to the charge being removed from his record.

“I failed in many ways,” Rice said in a statement released by the Ravens. “But Janay and I have learned from this. We have become better as a couple and as parents.”

Notes

• Cleveland’s Josh Gordon, a Pro Bowl wide receiver, will have an appeal hearing with league officials in New York next Friday, a source said.

Gordon, 23, is facing a possible one-year ban for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy for at least the third time.

• Jacksonville wide receiver Justin Blackmon, a former Oklahoma State standout, was arrested Wednesday in Edmond, Okla., on a complaint of marijuana possession. Police spokeswoman Jenny Monroe said Blackmon admitted he had smoked “a blunt” while driving and had another in his vehicle.

Blackmon, 24, was booked into the Edmond jail, where he posted $657 bond Thursday.

• Atlanta wide receiver Roddy White, 32, agreed to a four-year contract extension worth up to $30 million. The extension runs through 2018.
