NFL commissioner Roger Goodell testified under oath Wednesday for two-plus hours in Ray Rice's appeal hearing in Manhattan, sources told "Outside the Lines." Goodell testified after opening statements from both the NFL and the NFL players' union. Goodell spent the majority of his time testifying under cross-examination by outside union attorney Jeffrey Kessler, sources said. Rice and his wife, Janay, attended the hearing, and will testify separately Thursday. It's unclear when Jones will rule in the case, although some are saying it will come out in a few days. Rice, suspended indefinitely Sept. 8 for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy after a video of him hitting his then-fiancée was released publicly, was originally suspended two games. He has filed a separate grievance against the Ravens, challenging their right to terminate his contract and release him on Sept. 8. Rice is seeking repayment for the games he has missed.
