FBI Releases NFL Domestic Violence Investigation Report

The shadow of domestic violence continues to hang over the NFL, even as the playoff season moves into primetime.

Yesterday, former FBI Director Robert Mueller released a report on his investigation into how the league handled the Ray Rice case, the former Baltimore Ravens running back who assaulted his then-fiance in a casino elevator last February.

The Mueller report says the NFL was aware of the nature of the altercation but chose not to aggressively pursue additional information about what happened. The report was being released ahead of the second-round playoff games this weekend.

Here & Now sports analyst Mike Pesca discusses FBI report with host Robin Young.
