Rachel Nichols on Roger Goodell: It's a step forward, but there are unanswered questions

CNN's Rachel Nichols made headlines today when she grilled NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Today's news conference marked Goodell's first public comments in a week. Just after he promised to get the league's "house in order," more troubling news broke on the Ray Rice case. A source confirmed to CNN that Ravens' security spoke to Atlantic City Police and learned of the video from inside a casino elevator hours after the incident occurred. Anderson spoke with Rachel, along with Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko and domestic violence survivor Leslie Morgan Steiner.

Seven NFL players have been in the headlines recently for abuse or alleged abuse. Five of them have been benched or cut, one is just on the practice squad, but one is set to take the field to play this Sunday. That player is San Francisco 49er Ray McDonald who is accused of assaulting his pregnant fiancé. Sports Illustrated's Peter King spoke to Anderson about why a suspension is not necessarily the right move in the case.

    Tell the 49ers to send Ray McDonald home. Call CEO Jed York @ (408) 562-4927. An assistant will take the call so be polite! #CallJedYork
