Ray Rice will appeal his indefinite suspension by the NFL, ESPN.com reports.
The Baltimore Ravens cut Rice last Monday after video of him punching his then-fiancee was released, and the NFL suspended Rice indefinitely shortly thereafter.
Rice has until 10:59 p.m. Central time Tuesday to file the appeal.
The NFLPA is still considering multiple ideas for the basis of the appeal, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has drawn strong criticism for his handling of the incident since Rice was arrested in February after video showed him dragging his unconscious fiancee out of an Atlantic City, N.J., hotel elevator.
