NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) - Ray Rice attended a football game at his high school in a New York City suburb.

WABC-TV in New York reports that the recently released running back attended the game at New Rochelle High School with his wife, Janay Rice, and their daughter in New Rochelle.

Rice was released by the Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL on Monday after video of him punching Janay was released. Previously, he had been suspended two games by the league and the Ravens organization had announced its support for him.

The case has put the NFL in an uncomfortable spotlight as it faces criticism for how it handles cases in which players are accused of domestic violence.

The schools superintendent for New Rochelle, Brian Osborne, said in a statement emailed on Thursday that "our community stands united in the belief that physical violence to settle differences cannot be condoned."

The high school also removed Rice's jersey from its wall of fame and took down a placard honoring him.
