NEW YORK (AP) Ray Rice has won the appeal of his indefinite suspension by the NFL, the players' union said Friday.

NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah told The Associated Press in an email that "I can only confirm the suspension has been vacated, effective immediately."

The appeal was heard earlier this month by former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones. She was deciding whether the NFL overstepped its authority in modifying Rice's two-game suspension, making it indefinite after video of the Baltimore Ravens running back punching his fiancee- now his wife, Janay - became public.
