NEW YORK — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league asked for, but was not given, a just-released video showing former Ravens running back Ray Rice hitting his then-fiancee on an elevator.

Goodell says during an interview with CBS aired Tuesday: “We assumed that there was a video. We asked for video. But we were never granted that opportunity.”

Two videos, one released by TMZ Sports and another shown later to The Associated Press by a law enforcement official, show Rice punching Janay Palmer — who is now his wife — at an Atlantic City casino.

Goodell says no one at the NFL saw the video until TMZ posted it online Monday. After that, the Ravens cut Rice, and the league barred him indefinitely. Last month, Goodell suspended Rice for two games.

Titans

LB Brown sidelined for season: In Nashville, Tenn., Tennessee Titans linebacker Zach Brown will miss the rest of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Tuesday that the Titans hoped Brown might be able to return from the injury later this season, which would have allowed them to place him on injured reserve designated for return.

But Whisenhunt says unfortunately Brown will be out the rest of the season.

Redskins

Cofield PUT on short-term IR, out 8 weeks: In Ashburn, Va., Washington placed nose tackle Barry Cofield on short-term injured reserve, ruling him out for at least eight games.

Cofield left in the second quarter of Sunday’s 17-6 loss to the Houston Texans with a high right ankle sprain.

NFL teams are allowed to designated one player on IR who can return later in the season. Under the rule, Cofield cannot practice for six weeks and cannot play for eight weeks.

The injury will end Cofield’s streak of 81 consecutive regular season starts, the most among active NFL defensive tackles.

Chris Baker will move from defensive end to fill Cofield’s role. Jarvis Jenkins is expected to start in Baker’s spot.

The Redskins on Tuesday also promoted safety Akeem Davis from the practice squad to the active roster.

Bears

OL Britton SIGNED to 1-year contract: In Lakie Forest, Ill., Chicago signed offensive lineman Eben Britton to a one-year contract with center Roberto Garza and left guard Matt Slauson nursing ankle injuries.

The Bears announced Tuesday they were bringing back Britton after releasing him at the end of the preseason. He appeared in the final 13 games for Chicago last season.

Garza and Slauson were injured in the season-opening loss to Buffalo. The Bears visit San Francisco this week.

Chicago also released receiver and kick returner Micheal Spurlock on Tuesday. He had one catch for 8 yards and saw time as a punt returner with a fair catch against Buffalo.

Lions

Bentley on IR after knee injury: In Allen Park, Mich., Detroit put cornerback Bill Bentley on injured reserve after a knee injury in Monday night’s 35-14 win over the New York Giants.

The team says Bentley has an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Detroit’s secondary played fine in the season opener but it’s already a bit thin after losing Bentley. Safety James Ihedigbo was inactive for the game — he’s been dealing with knee and neck injuries.

Bentley is in his third NFL season.
