The Baltimore Ravens are remaining silent after deleting a now infamous tweet that said released running back Ray Rice's had wife apologized for him knocking her unconscious in an elevator.

Team spokesperson Sydney Wade refused comment when reached by AOL News and said only that an official statement would be released soon.

"It's been a very busy day here," Wade added.

The deleted tweet was initially sent May 23 from the official team account.

"Janay Rice says she deeply regrets the role that she played the night of the incident," it regrettably said.


Her vacant stares during an embarrassment of a press conference betrayed her reported apology. Her marriage to the running back resulted in head shakes and bewilderment.

The months since the February 13 incident at the Revel Casino, in Atlantic City, first saw Ray Rice escape with only a slap on the wrist.

He entered a diversionary program that allowed him to avoid having a criminal record and received only a two-game ban from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Public anger grew over the suspension to the point the league re-wrote it's punishment guidelines surrounding domestic violence.

That all changed Monday morning when TMZ published the horrific video of Ray Rice battering his then-fiancée in the elevator, punching her so hard her face hit the handrail.

He then dragged her unconscious body into the hall and waited for help to arrive.

The Ravens cut Rice and the NFL suspended him indefinitely amid claims neither party saw the entirety of the video until TMZ's bombshell report.

The NFL Players Association is also keeping quiet on the Ray Rice front.
