Owings Mills, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice addressed the media Thursday for the first time since the announcement of his two-game suspension for allegedly assaulting his then-fiancee.

"My actions that night were totally inexcusable," said Rice, alluding to the February incident between him and his now-wife Janay Palmer.

Surveillance video posted online by TMZ.com showed Rice lifting a motionless Palmer out of an Atlantic City casino elevator and onto the floor.

Rice was arrested and charged with simple assault-domestic violence.

In May, Rice was accepted into a pretrial intervention program that allowed him to avert prosecution and avoid serving any time in jail. The charges against him will be expunged from his record upon successful completion of the one-year program.

"That night I just replay over and over in my head. That's not me," Rice said. "My actions were inexcusable."

He also talked about the "pain" of having to explain what happened to their daughter.

Rice played in 15 games last season and tallied 660 yards and four touchdowns on 214 carries while adding 321 yards receiving. Over his career, the three- time Pro Bowl selection has rushed for 6,180 yards and 37 touchdowns and caught 369 passes for 3,034 yards and six scores.
