A source says that the former Baltimore Ravens running back has sworn off hard liquor since brutally assaulting his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer.

Ray Rice is blaming his recent domestic-assault issues on alcohol and, according to a TMZ report, has sworn off the hard stuff. Sources tell TMZ that Rice is no longer consuming hard liquor since the elevator incident in which he knocked out his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer.

On top of swearing off liquor, sources say, Rice and his now wife are looking to faith to help their marriage. Their religious ties have deepened since the incident at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., on Feb. 15. The couple has reportedly also been baptized and attends counseling with other married couples.

Earlier this week Rice released a statement saying that he’s working through the situation, he is in “good spirits” and the couple has a lot of people “praying for us.”
