So, in case you didn’t notice, the Ray Rice elevator video release dominated news this week, but life and drama in the sports world did go on. Here are the top 6 you may have missed this week.

At least four television networks say they plan to stop or minimize airings of video showing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice striking his then-fiancee and knocking her unconscious, footage that has called into question how the NFL disciplines players involved in domestic violence.
The NFL says former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III will conduct a probe into how the NFLhandled evidence as it investigated domestic violence claims against former Ravens running back Ray Rice.
A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee to an NFL executive five months ago, while league executives have insisted they didn’t see the violent images until this week.
The video has been all over social media, and it’s difficult to watch. It shows ex-Ravens running back Ray Rice slug his then-fiancee Janay not once, but twice in an elevator at an Atlantic City Casino. She was knocked out cold, then dragged out and left sprawled on the ground, laying there, not moving.
