"All of that could be resolved by mid-November."

Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice could be reinstated before the 2014 season comes to a close.  Sources have said that the running back who was shown in the controversial video striking his then-fiance could possibly be reinstated by the NFL within the next four weeks.

Rice who is currently under an indefinite suspension by the league and was cut by the Ravens could be back in uniform according to sources who spoke to CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora, Rice's hearing for an appeal now has a date and "all of that could be resolved by mid-November, which would conceivably allow Rice to sign with another team this season."

The appeal process is being handled by a third party arbitrator to the case which has brought the most controversy to the league in decades.  Former U.S. District Court Judge Barbara S. Jones is acting as the third party arbitrator for both sides.

Each side in the case has agreed to a date to conduct the hearing in the near future. According to CBSSports.com, expectations are high that Rice's playing status will be resolved before the completion of the investigation being done into the league's handling of Rice's case, which is being led by former FBI chief Robert Mueller. 

Rice's legal team will argue that Rice suspension should be a maximum of six games, which has already passed and legal experts believe that Rice's case is strong and believe it's possibly he could be cleared to play again by Jones sometime later in the season.
