Injured stars bring embattled NFL more bad news (AFP)
An embattled NFL reeling from off-field brutality issues by stars received more bad news with numerous injuries to key players in the second week of an already tumultuous campaign. Carolina coach Ron Rivera reversed himself and benched star defender Greg Hardy, who is appealing an assault conviction to a jury trial, only hours before a 24-7 victory over Detroit. "This was in the best interest of the Carolina Panthers. The Minnesota Vikings were without star rusher Adrian Peterson, who is out on bail from reckless child injury charges, in a 30-7 loss to New England and officials pondered his future status after deactivating him this week.

Rice will appeal indefinite suspension: reports (AFP)
Ray Rice, the National Football League star banned indefinitely after video of him knocking out his then-fiancee surfaced, will appeal the suspension, according to multiple reports. NBC, the Baltimore Sun and ESPN on Sunday reported that Rice, a star running back who helped the Baltimore Ravens win last year's Super Bowl, would challenge the indefinite ban handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell shortly after the Ravens fired Rice last Monday. Rice avoided jail time on domestic violence charges from his brutal punch by agreeing in May to a pre-trial intervention program. Goodell, who has guided the NFL since 2006, imposed only a two-game ban on Rice in July, one that drew widespread criticism as too lenient.

Criticism clouds Sunday football amid anger at NFL's Goodell (Reuters)
The stadiums were packed and the fans cheered, but overhanging the Sunday series of National Football League match-ups were continued calls for the ouster of league Commissioner Roger Goodell and outrage over the league's handling of players accused of domestic violence. Fierce criticism of the NFL has come from the White House, women's rights groups, fans of the games and others, with many calling for the Goodell to step down. Critics cite the NFL's handling of a domestic violence case involving three-time Pro Bowler Ray Rice as well as violent episodes involving other players, including one indicted for hitting his young son.

Ray Rice expected to appeal NFL suspension: reports (Reuters)
(Reuters) - Ray Rice is expected to appeal his indefinite suspension from the National Football League that followed last week's release of a video showing him punching his then-fiancee during an argument earlier this year, ESPN reported on Sunday, citing sources. The sports network said Rice must file his appeal by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, but that the NFL Players Association still had not finalized plans on what basis to use for the appeal. ESPN said ProFootballTalk.com had earlier reported Rice's plan to appeal the suspension. The 27-year-old running back was released by the Baltimore Ravens last Monday after the video was published on the TMZ website.

Panthers bench Hardy as violence concerns grow (AFP)
The Carolina Panthers deactivated defensive end Greg Hardy, found guilty of domestic violence in July, ahead of Sunday's National Football League home opener against Detroit as assault concerns grow league-wide. The Panthers defeated Detroit 24-7 and Carolina coach Ron Rivera, who two days earlier defended his plans to start Hardy, said he had changed his mind. "My rationale was because this was in the best interest of the Carolina Panthers," Rivera said after the victory. Hardy played last week for Carolina despite a judge convicting him two months ago for assaulting his former girlfriend and threatening to kill her.

Ray Rice will appeal indefinite suspension on Monday: report (Shutdown Corner)
Ray Rice is not going quietly into his indefinite suspension. Rice will appeal his indefinite suspension on Monday, Pro Football Talk reported. Rice was involved in an altercation with his then-fiancee in February in an Atlantic City casino. This summer, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Rice for two games for his actions, in which he knocked his now-wife Janay Rice unconscious with a punch. However, when video of the actual punch surfaced last week, Goodell, under extreme public criticism, increased the suspension to "indefinite." Rice's team, the Baltimore Ravens, also cut ties with him. (For a complete timeline of the Rice case, click here .) The NFL Players Association will handle Rice's appeal. And while the NFLPA will surely draw criticism for its decision to do so, Rice's case provides an important precedent: can a player be, in effect, punished twice for the same offense? One need not in any way approve of what Rice did to contend that there's a potentially problematic precedent being set here. Of course, the larger issue is why the punishment was so lenient to begin with, given the fact that the commissioner knew that Rice had knocked his fiancee unconscious and that the second, more graphic tape had been reportedly delivered to NFL headquarters. The appeal will surely put Goodell and his decisions under the microscope. For that reason, Goodell, who is the ultimate arbiter on these sorts of appeals, will likely need to excuse himself from the proceedings. As PFT notes , when several New Orleans Saints appealed the commissioner's judgment in the bounty scandal, former commissioner Paul Tagliabue stepped in, and ultimately overturned all judgments against the Saints. Such a reversal is unlikely here, but the appeal will shine even more light onto the NFL's highly criticized decision-making in the Rice case. - - - - - - - - Jay Busbee is a writer for Yahoo Sports.

Vikings miss Peterson in 30-7 loss to Patriots (The Associated Press)
The face of the franchise was nowhere to be found as the Minnesota Vikings flailed away against the New England Patriots on Sunday, and it's not clear when, if ever, Adrian Peterson will rejoin them. For eight years Peterson has been the focal point of the Vikings offense, but on Sunday he stayed away from the stadium to avoid becoming more of a distraction. Coach Mike Zimmer repeatedly declined to talk about Peterson after a mistake-filled 30-7 loss only to later describe an offensive malaise that he had previously not seen from his team. Matt Cassel threw a career-high four interceptions, the Vikings rushed for just 54 yards against a defense that gave up 191 last week and dynamic receiver Cordarrelle Patterson was held to just to just four catches for 56 yards.

Panthers DE Hardy inactive against Lions (The Associated Press)
Panthers coach Ron Rivera had a change of heart Sunday, benching defensive end Greg Hardy before the team's 24-7 win against the Detroit Lions. Rivera defended his late decision to make Hardy inactive by saying the ''climate has changed'' in the NFL and the team ''has to get this right.'' Rivera said he wouldn't rule out Hardy playing this season but refused to put a timetable on that decision. He was active against Tampa Bay in Week 1. Panthers cornerback Antoine Cason said he learned Hardy would not play just before the start of the game.
