Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome delivered perhaps the understatement of the Scouting Combine, when asked about running back Ray Rice.

Regarding the video that shows Rice dragging his unconscious fiance out of an elevator after an alleged altercation, Newsome said, “It doesn’t look good.”

As they say in the NFL, tape doesn’t lie.

But Newsome was also careful to point out that while it was “very concerning” but the Ravens wanted to continue to gather facts in the case before making any decisions about Rice.

Newsome also has the ability to fall back on the league for direction, as Rice will be reviewed under the league’s personal conduct policy.
