Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and fiancée Janay Palmer reportedly were married on Friday, only one day after Rice was indicted by a grand jury for allegedly assaulting Palmer at an Atlantic City casino last month.
Rice was indicted on Thursday on one count of aggravated assault for the February incident. The charge is a third-degree felony carrying a potential penalty of three to five years in prison.
Rice's attorney, Michael Diamondstein, spoke to NFL Media on Thursday.
"We deny Ray Rice committed aggravated assault," Diamondstein said. "Neither Ray nor Janay Palmer wish to prosecute the matter. Ray and Janay are together. They're happy, and they're in counseling."
Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti told reporters earlier this week that Rice will "definitely be back" with Baltimore for the 2014 season. Bisciotti's support echoes that of general manager Ozzie Newsome and coach John Harbaugh.
