Robert Mueller's investigation of the handling of the Ray Rice case is expected to be completed by the end of this month, a league source told ESPN.
There had been some hope that Mueller would complete his investigation before Tuesday's NFL owners meetings in New York City, but he still has to meet with and speak to the former Ravens running back.
Once that happens, there's a sense that the report could be done before November.
Rice was suspended indefinitely Sept. 8 for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy after a video of Rice hitting his then-fiancée in an elevator was released publicly. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell originally had suspended Rice for two games.
